studbeefpile is a 265 bench, 485 deadlift and 352 squat good powerlifting weight for my first meet? I'm weighing in at about 165 right now

How old are you?

Those are pretty good numbers, but I think the question is silly. Unless you're trying to qualify for some national competition, it doesn't really matter. The best thing you can do in your first meet is pick really secure numbers, follow all the directions/commands perfectly, and go 9/9. Once you get into it a bit more and get more comfortable, you can start pushing for PRs in meets, etc. etc. But if this is your first, I really recommend taking it relatively easy, and just getting super adjusted to lifting on the platform. Despite what gym heroes will tell you, lifting in a meet is muuuuch much different from lifting in a gym (once again, why gym totals don't count). Doing 9 heavy lifts in one day, over the course of several hours takes a toll on you - especially if you've never done it before. Maybe you hit those PRs individually on separate days, and you were well rested for each lift. In a meet, by the time you get to your deadlift, you'll already have done 6 near-max effort lifts between the bench and the squat, and if you go in thinking you're gonna get a new Dead PR just because you're in a meet, you may be disappointed.

Anyway....long answer for a short question....Those numbers are fine, mirrin deadlift for sure, just follow the rules and pick manageable weights.

I'm 17

I'll take that on board and use my first meet as a time to get used to the sport, the competition environment and the rules etc.

Thanks for the tips and stuff! Yeah the 485 is trap bar, I'm hoping to his that straight, right now I'm hitting 440 for 2 straight at the moment, so it's pretty much unachievable to hit, but I wanna get as close as I can

Yeah those numbers are pretty dang good then, especially for your age.

But yeah, I personally think trap bar DL is silly - you'll get better leg work from squatting, you'll get better back work from deadlifting. TBDL is just sort of a mediocre combination of both.

Main thing you want to do is make sure you're squatting to good depth, record yourself to make sure. You don't wanna bomb out of the meet because you couldn't hit depth for any of your squats. Always bench with a pause, and ditch the trap bar. You'll do fine. When is it?

I'm gonna agree with marinepenguin Trap Bar feels a lot better. I feel like I am actually getting stronger from it in comparison to straight bar where it takes forever to add 10 pounds

Only problem I have with trap bar is that at higher weights the plates stop fitting on the bar gym requires all deadlifts and cleans to use a large rubber 45 as the first plate. They're bigger than a metal plate, so when you hit the floor the metal plates aren't going to break

Yes it has happened. One of our 45s is cracked from someone dropping a 635 squat outside the squat rack like a dipshit, and I broke a 5 once deadlifting

Except it's not misinformation. The trap bar deadlift can easily be a substitute for straight bar deadlifts.

Benefits: less stress on lower back, shown to produce more force over a longer period of time (great if you're an athlete), much easier for novice lifters to perform with lower risk of injury

Negatives: less hamstring and hip recruitment

Okay, a substitute for people with back issues does not equal a superior movement.

Your first 'benefit' could just as easily be flipped to say you're missing out on lumbar erector development. Like I said, the squat gives you better leg development, the straight bar deadlift gives you better back development, and the trap bar is a mediocre in-between.

Cool variation, or good for rehab/compromised lifters? Sure. Superior movement? That's just plain silly.

Except that the lower stress allows potential for heavier weights with lower chance for injury. It has a higher risk to reward ratio in that area. Making that underdeveloped lower back not quite as underdeveloped as you'd think.

And it's not a "mediocre" leg developer. It's arguably one of the most versatile lifts as it can be adjusted to mimic either the squat or the deadlift in much safer spinal positions while also stressing the yolk of your back much more.

Squatting puts really low stress on my chest, with lower chance for chest injury, which allows me to use heavier weights than I could for bench, making the squat great for chest development. Are you having a stroke?

And it is a mediocre leg developer, it gives you half squat ROM, which is useless except for a little bit of quad development. Squats are infinitely superior for leg development, and straight bar deads are infinitely better for posterior chain development.

And yes, it's great for your yoke (yolks are eggs, silly) if you wanna do shrugs or carries with it, since that's what it is designed for after all.

I never said it placed no stress on the low back, it still develops the low back, just without placing as much sheer stress on it as the deadlift. That's the main difference there.

And I'm not claiming its a better leg developer then the squat or that it's better for the posterior chain then deads. But claiming that it's "mediocre" at developing your legs is just wrong. Especially from an athletic standpoint.

Awesome. The only one that's gonna be a stretch is the deadlift. I can hit it pretty easy usually, but I use the trap bar more than anything. Started using the straight bar now to get ready, so should be hitting about the same number by the time it comes around. Also started doing 45 minutes of squat variations 3 or 4 times a week to get my squat up a little

Yes, it's good for weight loss and (relatively) minor muscle gains.

The "muscle confusion" thing isn't as drastic as the program might make you think, but the program itself still works, and is solid. Also, it promotes yoga, which is lowkey the dankest shit you can do for your body.

Never forget that diet is most important for weight loss!

Reverse curls with a thumbless grip work your forearms really well. Forearms respond well to high reps and short rest periods.

Also doing timed hangs can help grip and shoulder health as a bonus.

Fat grips stress your forearms more during regular movements like rows or curls, I've never used them myself personally, but I've heard good things about them.

How fast does the average person build strength/muscle? When I was a senior in HS during the last few months of the year, I would spend about 15-30 minutes in the fitness room and spent about 2 weeks worth of regular gym class time in it. Went from being able to comfortably curl 15lb dumbbells to comfortably curling 40-45lb and bench 150 comfortably(didn't know my limit. I just did what was comfortable. I was able to hold up 200 though). I was like 5'6-7(not really sure how tall/short I was) and weighed 120lbs. I definitely was not eating very healthy. I often drank Mountain Dew while I was working out(had more throughout the day) and at most had a $1 bag of chips from the vending machine for the whole day.

For you fitness nuts, is this normal or am I able to gain muscle faster/easier than most?

Started when I was 15, got a shitty gym 1k when I was 16, did it for realzies on the platform when I was 17 (Gym totals don't count. If you've never competed, your total is ZZZERO. srs not srs.)

Right now, my bests are:

B: 290 w/pause
S: 385 - although that was quite a while ago, no idea where it is now - I've just been doing rep work for the past 4 or 5 months
D: 465 is my tested max, but it was easy.

It's mostly a joke.

But of course most satire is based in some truth. The main point is just that in competition, your lifts are performed under scrutiny. If you have a particular competition total, there's no question of depth, or pause, or hitching, because there were judges there to make sure. So really it's just a bit more 'legit'. I don't count touch and go bench as true bench. In my opinion, Pause bench should be considered normal, and touch and go a variation. Same goes for squatting to depth. If you don't hit parallel, it's not a squat, same goes for hitching deads, etc.

That's not the only reason. I'd still say it even if I didn't compete. I just think there should be a particular standard for these movements. If one guy says "Yeah I squat 405" but he doesn't hit parallel, and another guy says "I squat 365" but squats deep, people are just gonna think the guy saying he squats 405 is stronger - despite the fact he isn't actually completing a squat, and in all actuality the guy squatting 365 has more real strength. It's just silly, and it especially gives a lot of confusion to people that don't life weights.

Excepting adding a pause to the bench press doesn't really change any of that. People can easily butcher a pause bench just as easily as a standard bench press.

People having bad form and telling others their incorrect numbers is a moot point to me.

That isn't true at all. Pause bench inherently improves form. It's much much much more difficult to execute pause bench with shit form - unless you're doing something ridiculous like touching way high on your chest above your nipples. That's why all beginners should start with pause bench.

It improves one part of bench form, speed and stability at the bottom of the lift. It doesn't force your shoulders into a good position or stop your elbows from flaring out, or keep your ass on the bench.

Is pause bench a great variation of the bench press? absolutely. But it isn't inherently better then a touch and go bench, it's just a more difficult variation.

Pause bench encourages all of those things though. You'll have a much better pause bench if you get tighter, if you pin your shoulders back harder, etc. etc. You can get away with soooo much more with bouncing.

It is inherently better than touch and go. Better for strength development, better for hypertrophy (nb4 'but muh TUT' - pause requires you to recruit more muscle fibers in order to get the weight moving again, touch and go plays off the myotatic reflex a ton), and better for health since a controlled movement like that is much easier on your tendons.

Except that the same thing happens with a regular bench press. And correct touch and go bench isn't "bouncing". That's called bad form.

And a lot of it is highly individual. Personally I do better with pause reps in the 3-5 rep range, while touch and go is far easier for 6-15+ reps.

I think you're wrong. Pausing in the hole forces you to maintain a higher degree of tightness. With touch and go, and with pause, you'll be better off being tight, but paused demands it more.

And of course you do better touch and go in the high rep range, touch and go is less work.

Are there legitimately any reasons at all not to pause your bench?

Try different variations on pull down?

Wide grip
Close grip
Then try the v handle

Can suck but youll find a way.

Conventional lifting wisdom would say wide grip pull ups, pull downs, and barbell rows. However, with the exception of splicing your DNA with that of a pterodactyl, I have no personal advice as I'm in the same boat as you.

Yep. Lats and overall back are strong, but terrible lat spread. At this point in wondering if it just has to do with genetics. I've been told though that deadlifting hits them as well, so I'm hoping I'll see more progress as my DL numbers progress.

Push ups. pulls ups get creative , reverse rows, dips, cardio and eating right. Toning is the biggest bullshit myth in the fitness world. The look you want is a little bit of muscle with a fairly low amount of fat.

Do some sort of cardio 5-6 days a week and some resistance training 3 times a week. Clean up your diet and you should see results in a few months.

For the past 2 days I've eaten nothing but meat and fish with a few handfuls of mixed salad to keep my vitamins up, and I could easily keep doing so for a while. I feel fantastic. Might get some B12 and some multivits and keep doing this for a few weeks. I also spent 45 minutes before my pull day today doing nothing but squat variations. Gonna regret it tomorrow on leg day.

I am absolutely gonna go for it. Whether or not I get it remains to be seen. I hit 455 for 3 solid singles this past saturday - they weren't grinders or anything at all. So I think I have a solid shot at it.

I also just hit a 290 bench in training, slow, but also not a grinder, so I may have a shot at 300 as well. Definitely going for both.

Tfw sick leg day workout. Back squat 270 for 5, RDL's did an easy 245 for 6, Front squats did 205 for 5 after my main sets.

May have to chill on RDL's when I start deadlifting though. Or I may do deadlifts one pull day, then not do RDL's the following leg day. I'll figure something out.

supposed to lose 10 lbs with colon cleaning if you do it monthly, figured the tea would just be beneficial since the colon still absorbs water and nutrition from the poop before finally leaving
