    Agreed...cardio too for that matter. Any of those "fat" linemen in that picture I posted probably have great cardio capacity than OP.

    Why do fat people powerlift and strength train? They need to be doing low weight and high reps and cardio. WTF?
    This comment has been sufficiently answered so I won't go there; but in all seriousness, i've come across multiple threads that you have started with questions similar in nature in that your mind is boggled at various ways people live their lives. You also report to have or be heading to a post grad in psych, not in exercise science, kinesiology, strength & conditioning etc. So naturally there are gong to be things you do not understand but that does not make your opinion on the matter the right one.

    If you don't like it, go train at planet fitness or something and leave the PLers be.

    jesus h f'ing christ, no thread has pissed me off more than this one since i've been here. as jason said, you just can't make strength gains at that body fat %.

    op, how long have you been training? i'm guessing not too long. do us all a favor and post your age, weight and numbers before you cast dispersions on people that have different goals than you, if you have any.

    please, give us all the benefit of your training experience...

    I think this video concludes the thread nicely, if you haven't watched before, you need to. If you have, you should watch it again.

    That's why personal goals are just that...personal. trying to apply your goals to someone else is quite an ******* move, IMO (and I'm a bodybuilder)

    Unhappy


    Sorry, my two troll topics have been received a bit too seriously.

    This and the female steroids topics were meant to be in good fun. Calm yourselves you crazy bastards, no anabolics for you!

    You have discouraged me from making my final troll topics:

    "Why it's okay for teenagers to use tren"

    and

    "I kept my gains without a PCT, don't waste your money"




    Thanks a lot! Now we get to go back to mostly boring

    Everyone is different...

    There are people who enjoy being tiny and skinny, justin bieber like, and think that muscular people are ugly looking. Some people want to look like fitness models, with definition but not huge muscles. Some people want to look huge and ripped. Some people want to be able to lift as much as they can and don't really care the way they look.

    To each its own.
