So you don't want to enter a competition that you can surely win and you don't want to enter a competition where you could possibly lose due to benching and squats? I'm confused...but I think you should lift in a meet anyway. Competitions are fun and you can meet others who aren't "against you" and part of the iron brotherhood. Also with a strong deadlift you can out total people who might be a little stronger in the squat and bench.

Everything else aside, good job on the pull.

Great pull, but if you don't work on technique and form, you're gonna eventually blow out those lumbar discs. You have amazing strength, now its time to focus on form.

I bet you could hit 550 or more with some specific training and work.

I agree with Yosh on this one. Even if you squat 250Lbs and bench 175lbs with a 500lbs pull that still put you at 1025lb total give or take. I would guess you'd compete at 148 since it's only a 6lb cut. Your deadlift alone would be in the top 15 current lifter rankings and a 1025lb total would be in the top 40. For having never done a meet, that is a damn good starting point. Sooner later if you're any kind of man, you have to step up and step out and see what the fuck you've got. Strong work on the pull though.

As someone said earlier, don't be a fucking douche bag. You lift weights. You haven't cured Cancer. be humble and keep working hard. Loud mouths embarrass themselves. Your lifting will speak for itself.

07-11-2012, 09:24 PM
Little brother I'll tell you; the deadlift impressed the crap out of me. Awesome! The display of 'Little Man Syndrome' trying to convince yourself you're a major league bada** totally blew it though. You're young, you'll learn so I'm understanding, but I feel I'd be doing you an injustice not sharing some 'Old Dog's' life lesson with you now. If you want to impress people (and we all do) you'll be best served and actually build fans by just letting your accomplishments do the talking for you. Now I like entertaining excitable competitors and anybody who's watched me compete knows I'm as jacked up to psych myself up as anybody; and a pretty good crowd pleaser. But I never try to smack talk and make insulting inflamatory remarks at competitors , crowds, judges..whoever. You had me as a new fan right until the time you showed your a** instead of your class. Why do you think Ed Coan is and probably always will be so highly regarded in our sport? Because he walked the walk on the platform and talked the talk with the numbers on the scoreboard. I consider myself very good at looking at athletes and assessing potential strengths and weaknesses. Learned from several years of coaching high school football and coaching powerlifters. You appear to me to be almost ideally built to be an athlete. Almost a true mesomorph which is the ideal somoto-type for a football runningback, bodybuilder, and even powerlifter in the middle wt. classes. I'm afraid the excuse of being non-biomechanically suited to squat doesn't fly. You're almost ideally suited to squat if your form is good. If you're squatting the weight you say for 23 reps your form is likely pretty good. Working the squat to getting under 'heavy' wt. is not a natural act. There is a fear factor that most can't work through when it comes to the exercises that you are actually underneath that have the potential to crush and injure or potentially kill you. Bench press to a degree, but squats being the king of the fear factor lifts. It's O.K. to be a person who can't get past that as long as you're honest about it and not making excuses or still trying to push throuugh it. Just be honest. I'll respect you much more that way. I can respect your lifting totally as a DL only lifter if that's what you love and don't make up cope out excuses about biomachanics and such. And don't go with the AC joint thing. I came back from 3 shoulder surgeries; the last one being a shoulder replacement to keep doing what I love doing and building my bench back to a masters record setting level (551 and winning Masters Nationals with the highest coefficient of 20 masters benchers) I've never stood on the platform and yelled to the crowd how good or great I thought I was. I did in the gym what I had to do for the meet results and/or record books to say that for me. One last thing I''l leave you with. Gyms are full of strong guys who look at meet results and say "I could have done that". And maybe they could. But to have a chance to be a champion you also have to have the courage to risk loosing. And sometime loosing can do you more good than a win. In 2005 I went into Nationals training like I thought I was God's gift to masters powerlifting and couldn't be beat. I found myself in a dog fight right down to the last deadlift with Larry Mistric of Texas and lost by 2 1/2 kilos when I missed my last pull. Talk about an on the job lesson in humility. But it made me determined not to lose like that again. After sulking for a week or so I gave myself an attitude adjustment and dove into my training like I never had before. I lost in June, by November at Worlds in Finland I added over 100 lbs. to my total, won gold in both the full meet and bench only and broke 2 world records. My point is that your sense of humility and realizing that you 'can' be beat by someone somewhere will take you much farther than a self convincing false cockiness ever will. No matter how loud you boast and beat your chest or not, something eventually in life will bring you to your knees no matter how strong you are and cause you to re-think all that is important in life. I'm about to go into a battle with cancer and am losing my right kidney, then most likely back surgery. I've spent the last 2 weeks or so doing a lot of soul searching and finding that it is not my accomplishments that hold the most importance to me afterall (and there have been many). It is my love of my wife and family and friends that I'm finding strength and joy in and my faith in God. I don't know if you're religious but there is an old saying I've found true. "If you don't find your knees; God will find a way to show them to you." I've found this true on a number of occasions as I've been a overly cocky and at time arrogant person at times in my own life. He reminds me there's always someone bigger and stronger than me. I've found I'm happiest when I stay aware of that and draw on that stregth and not just my own.

I don't want you to take this as scolding you, but as advice from someone who's been there and learned these lessons the hard way. Maybe I can help spare you some of the consequences. Anyway; that deadlift was very impressive and I bet you'd have gotten nothing but positives on it if you'd just let it do it's own boasting. Good luck, train hard and I wish you much success...on the platform and in life.

Abs on a skinny guy are like big tits on a fat chick, IT DOESN'T COUNT!!!!!

I like this one! I'm impressed when I see abs like this on a guy at 220 to 250ish (like Jose Garcia) who can still squat around 1080 or so...and pull mid 800s! Most middle school football locker rooms have 10-12 skinny guys with similar abs. That's not abdominal delelopement, just a lack of bodyfat so they're easily visible. Any reasonably athletic male with 6-8% bodyfat has very visible abs even with little to no direct training. It's just a nice by-product of being young and having a fast metabolism. Being cut is not being muscular. It's just not being fat. The true original term in bodybuilding of muscularity is the best combination of muscle size and definition. Too many times in lower level contest they seem to forget the muscle size part and just give the most cut up stick man 1st place. But look at pro bodybuilding. It's not always the most define guys who win, but the best total package (combination of size, definition, symetry and presentation). As I used to tell other BBers; "Muscle maketh the man...not starvation. Build it 1st. Then chisel it. You can't make a big sculture from a little rock."

It's a good deadlift but nothing amazing.
Skinny guys are often able to pull big weights how ever their bench and squat is tiny, so no they are not strong just good at the deadlift. I pulled 220 for 12 first time I lifted at 52KG. Yet I could only squat 130 pounds, and bench around the same.

While I do agree with you...I will say this.

Lower level contest = most likely everyone is natty
Pro level = everyone is on

There is your difference. Unfortunately, winning as a natty is mostly about conditioning. It is just the way it is. Without the drugs, you are not getting huge AND shredded and without the drugs you are losing muscle as you diet down to get to 5-6%. So all that leaves you with is shredded without the size, unfortunately.
