Does doing a powerlifting routine make you a powerlifter? I'd say that unless you're competing or have competed then you're not a powerlifter.

That's like saying you're a hockey player just because you train like one in the gym.

My first competition is this weekend but even after that I don't think I'll really consider myself a powerlifter.

Any thoughts?

No you are a hockey player if you play hockey and a power lifter if you power lift.

If you do it on a regular bases then you are. A smoker is a smoker and yet they do not have to compete to get the title.

Where in the $%#@ is that hamberger icon?

What? Not really, considering to a power lifter the gym would be the ice rink.

Then that would imply you're not a golfer if you don't compete in tournaments. Most people who play golf consider themselves "golfers" even though they don't compete. It's semantics - who cares.
