i still have twig arms though so clearly i'm not doing it right
Nah powerlifters are a specific type of fuckwad (ideal thread to discuss this...). They are likely the type who post about their lifts on facey etc (along with the weight loss tossers and a myriad of other wankers - one of whiich I probably am... i posted a about rowing occasionally... but at least thats competitive).
Doing weights is fine (in fact pretty much mandatory if you want to be good at most types of sports), but those morons who live just to lift heavy weights, to me, are fucktardely stupid. My favourites are the guys who can bench like 300 lbs but have tiny little twig legs.
I go to the gym to justify my mockery of fat people.
