Fuck social media.
Fuck the whiny bitches on social media.
You know forums are "social media" too, right? And I've never seen whinier people than on Sherdog.
I know bands are handy for dynamic effort work as well as banded push downs, standing ab crunches and band face pulls. But I’ve also seen people claim a 2000lbs rack pull and say half of it was bands.
Ego lifting is disrupting and obnoxious lol
Nobody gets mad about ego lifting except people on forums and people who are generally weak to be quite honest.
Anyone who benches 3 plates and squats 4 could give a flying fuck about what you do in the gym srs.
Ego lifting is defined as lifting too much weight so that your form breaks down so as to impress.
I guess it assumes the observer is uneducated and that's insulting?
My gym did a deal with Eleiko and are currently expanding and refitting the main gym area. It will have multiple squat cages and all the bars and equipment are Eleiko.
Sounds sweet. Are there sponsored strength athletes at this gym or just hobbyists? That's a hell of an upgrade. Bars alone are a good investment because they last forever, but few gyms could justify spending the cash for their plates.
It's the official Edinburgh University Gym. They have a very large budget. I don't know the exact price, but one of the senior staff told me the deal was worth tens of thousands.
The same gym spent nearly £30,000 a few years ago on Iron Grip Dumbbells.
People who do that are robots. using buzz words... "ego lifting" "proper form" etc etc etc. Mostly its guys who can only bench 135 and brag about their form.
Focus on yourself, as long as you don't get injured you good.
That is one of the things i am talking about. I had this skinny dude i there stand behind me when i was doing warm up sets on squats checking to see if i was going low enough. For years, i have done two warm up sets w/ 135 lbs and 225 lbs. I think this guy couldn't even squat 225 on a real, working set so he was going to try to tell his girlfriend that it was b/c i was using horrible form and that is the reason i could squat that. I don't give a shit what he tells his girlfriend but standing behind me was BS
Whatever works for u.if u feel good about it then do it .just be careful
ego lifting is when your ORM is 500lbs and you try to lift 550. people talk shit about it because it's dumb.. instead of gradual progression peoples egos lead them to try to make massive jumps risking serious injury.
If you are going for your max deadlist/squat or bench who cares what other people think? you have to prepare yourself since you will beyond your 100%. You cannot train like a sheep and expect lion results.
If they can do it while keeping form, go for the 50lbs jump I say. If they do it just to impress gym bros and chicks whilst looking like they are about to noodle under that weight...Fuck em.lol
I've seen some programs that make the jump by 25 to 30 pounds though. I'm currently doing Ed Coan's deadlift program. By the end of the tenth week I will be going for two new PR's. One on week 11 and on 12 before deload. Week 11 is like a 5 to 10 pound jump...Week 12 being near 20.
You can go for more if you feel confident Ed says. I've noticed his program has some great volume as well...Multiple sets with 3 reps.
because for some odd reason guys who just lift weights have more fake ego than pro fighters lol its due to insecurity tbh they cant fight so they try to get buff to look like they can
Yeah that's right, all you chumps!
Say it how it is, tekkenfan!
