Why is the man in his underwear?  Did he forget to get dressed in the morning?
didn't want to over dress in case some tea-bagging was requested.

Meh, I could care less about lifting 'x' amount of weight for egos sake and I would never want to look like a powerlifter.
I have a huge amount of respect for power and olympic lifters.
BOTH sports make more sense and winning is based on objective criteria which I like.

BUT seeing a massive , ripped freak, like Jay or Ronnie in top shape just kicks ass for some reason.
Hail to the mass! THAT is where my passion is.

Look like a powerlifter?  Roll Eyes Konstantin Konstantinov, Efferding, etc, etc... I bet you are a 70kg tit...

Those a major exceptions to the rule....you can't sit here with a straight face and think Powerlifters have as good a physique as Bodybuilders on average. Most , virtually ALL, PLers I know are big bulky guys with huge waists and very little in the way of aesthetic muscularity.

I respect what they do, but their holier than thou attitude is bullshit. I train just as hard as a powerlifter, just use a different approach.

They are both ego-driven pursuits anyway....one to look better than the next man, the other to be stronger than him

I'm a powerlifter with a bodybuilder's physique. I find the whole 'sport' of bodybuilding creepy as fuck and don't like to think of myself as training like a bodybuilder.

To each his own...i think a bunch of fat goons strapping themselves into gizmos that let them lift more than they really can is beyond stupid.

How much can you bench ?

"with or without a shirt ??"

ummm....what ?

Because he says he's a powerlifter with a bodybuilder's physique. Pretty lofty claim....I'm calling BS

Their "build" isn't based on their style of training, it's based upon their high bodyfat levels. Take any upper level powerlifter and get him down to sub-8, and then you will see a decent physique. In fact, they will have an even more granite-like appearance due to them training with very very heavy training loads.

Even when it has NOTHING to do with you, Your stupid agenda gets shoehorned in there.

You can say what you want, but Ed Coan never fucked a grapefruit.....Smiley. Bodybuilding, what a hobby.

As far as Powerlifting, you need to look at the lighter weight classes, many of those fellas physiques atleast in the 60's-early 90's were 85-90% as good as your average bodybuilder. It's unfair to only pull out the SHW's that just don't give a fuck about how they look or have to worry about weight classes. It would be like pulling out an off-season Ronnie Kamali, Cook, etc... and go "look at these fat asses".
