Strong for powerlifting... check this out

Powerlifters aren't really defined by their rep ranges.

Bloody Hell!

18 and a 1,675lb total :eek:

Good work mate, looking forward to having you post on the board more often. Have you got any interest in the physique side of things or is it all power based?

Yeah, I used to be into b-building but my powerlifting days were calling towards me. My arms are 19 inches but I bet that there only 17.5-18 cutt-ripped. My real talent is to lift heavy weights not to impress people with my looks, so I stuck to lifting heavy, lol. Other than that I wouldn't mind impressing people with my looks, lol. I'd rather be asked how much I lift rather than how big my arms are. Thank you for welcoming me to the webforum. Please visit my webpage, its a cheap one, but its got a lot of usefull information and its tells more about powerlifting.

Yeah, been to the site and it looks quite helpful. Especially when covering the basics. Im with you 100% in that in order to develop the body fully you must know the process' that occur in order to induce hypertrophy.

The problem lies when people go into weight-training blind and just 'copy' other lifters, i.e. the blind leading the blind.

If they were to pick up a exercise and physiology textbook before hand they could avoid wasting time with ineffective routines. Thats where the internet comes in and the likes of WBB. because they are a great shop window to display what to and what not to do.
