    You Know You're a Powerlifter When......


    Saw this somewhere else, should be fun:


    When you;
    - Plan Business trips by the gyms in that area.
    - When you get a headache or bloody nose from tying your shoes.
    - Get excited by popped blood vessels.
    - When you consider anything above 4reps high.
    - You admire the fresh marks left by your bench shirt!
    - When you lift enough weight that people stop giving you

    Here are some of my own personal ones that I am proud yet ashamed of...
    -You have bottles of Nose torque stashed around the house just in case.
    -You have purchased the gallon sized bottle of Blue heat more than once.
    -You don't have any pants, shoes, or shirts that look new and fit right but yet you have bench shirts and squat suits you have had tailored multiple times.
    -You have considered moving to Columbus Ohio at least once a week.
    -You save the cushions from old furniture so that you can squat to it.

    - have huge arms & do no bicep iso exercises.

    Some i found funny

    1. Chalk your back before a squat
    2. There is a nice Bar sized brusie across your traps and your proud of it.
    3.Commercial Gym Trainers keep asking when will you stop Bulking and start your cutting up phase.
    4. if the first thing you ask when you hear some one say cut!..you ask if there all right.
    5. If you need a bucket near by during squat day.
    6. Instead of glasses of water with meals its beer.
    7. you develop white lung from chalk and baby powder.
    8. you would pay $$$$$ to see Dave tate bitch slap Tony Horton.
    9. your upper back crampes from wipping your own ass.
    10. you still move more weight on a deload week then the strongest guy in your gym.
    11. if you've ever leaned over to kiss your significant other and your inner voice started yelling " tuck, tuck, tuck, belly, belly, tuck.
    12. When you dislike walking in a parking lot more than driving in one, due to the fact it's so damn hard to fit between parked cars.
    13. For three days after squat day you have to get psyched up to get out of your car.
    14. You're ready to go out to a restaurant and your husband asks you which Westside shirt looks the best with his black sweatpants.
    15.When steak and potatoes are considered diet food.


    There plenty more , These always crack me up. gotta love the PL mentality!

    Awesome! I love #2 There is a nice Bar sized brusie across your traps and your proud of it.

    My girl always asks me what that bruise is and I just smile..


    Can you imagine the reaction a powerlifter would get if a psychologist could get into our mind for one day ! He'd probably find a new profession. Haha

    Found some classics today

    You might be a Powerlifter if you can't count above 5 but can multiply by 45 in your head.

    You know your a powerlifter when you work at a desk during the day and you still have 1/2 inch thick calluses on your hands.

    You might be a powerlifter if you dismount the toilet like doing box squats (to perfect that explosive power).

    you might be a powerlifter if you squat down to poop and look for 3 white lights.
    you might be a powerlifter if you reach down to grab your kids and lock out your hips on the way up.
    you might be a powerlifter if you can barely get out of a chair or the bed without moaning in agony but can squat a small car.
    you can call me "ozzie" for short.

    When you're too fat to call yourself a bodybuilder?

    I kid I kid. My routine is more powerlifting than anything else these days -- I don't even do arms anymore. Arnold talks about the foundation with his body he was able to build by training as a powerlifter at the beginning of his career in The New Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilding. Whenever anyone asks for advice on form these days I tell them to learn from powerlifters -- if anyone knows how to put up massive weight without injuring themselves, it's powerlifters!

    here's one for me

    -when you walk into the weight room and the guys on "your" bench move to another bench.
    -when you have to build up motivation to put on a pair of blue jeans
    -when on a sick day your wife tells you that "you ate like a normal person today"
