    Strong and Ripped -- Overcoming the Stigma






    In the gym many people are concerned with LOOKING big and strong but not BEING big and strong.

    Lets look at some videos of some respectable professional powerlifters with amazing physiques:

    Dan Greene, a GREAT power lifter


    Stan the Rhino


    Examples are abundant, lets overcome the association of strong = fat.

    Your physique needs to be in line with your goals. Above are two lean, very powerful world record holders in the powerlifting world.

    Agreed! There are some great power lifters out there with unreal physiques.
    For many PL is a great stepping stone to BB and vice versa BB turned PL. All about your goals and motivations... No one is gonna get small doing PL.

    Is there some factor here relating to what/how much drugs you are willing to take though? There has to be a reason that some of these guys have to cut to look decent rather than just stay below a certain bodyfat while still adding bodyweight....

    There has to be a trade-off somewhere I'm missing, unless it's the ol' genetics card. Or, the patience card.

    I notice how wide their feet are on deads... is that the powerlifting way? I think both of my knees would blow the kneecaps off with those squats and my intestines would dump on the deads.. strong MoFos
