    I grunt doing deadlifts nothing else..

    It is a masculine thing, it is fine to do if you are doing somehting that permits it..

    For example

    Me deadlifitng 200kg has a right to grunt..

    The guy next to me doing calf rasies does not.

    If someone snatched 200kg at your gym and made noise you wouldnt think twice. But curling in the squat rack with a belt you get the idea...

    Grunting in general is just a cry for attention, if you are an attention seeking douche and you want everyone to think you are a loser, go right ahead.

    I'm one of the strongest lifters at my gym (It's pretty tame) and when Im pushing for a PB, I don't scream, that shit is gay.
    6'4", 128kg - Bulking to 130kg by September...

    Recent PB's - Bench 160kg 3x5, Sumo Deadlift 250kg x 1 220kg 3x3, Squat 210kg x 1 180kg x 10, BB Row 120kg 5x5

    If you're doing this

    Valsalva maneuver - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    and not making any noise, you have a very interesting body design.

    Not something I choose to do - like a display of masculinity, but that's how my body works.
    First you get the powerlifts, then you get the women, then you get the money.

    Really you think someone attempting a 1rm that makes a little noise out of frustrating/sturggling is crying for attention?

    Its like silent sex who the **** enjoys that..

    Its masculan its alpha male its just in us, Being tuaght though martial arts to expel force through breath should correlate to lifting.. You tense your diaphram in anticipation for an incoming strike wouldnt that same effect have benefits in aiding in support for ones core?

    Not to mention the positive release and feeling of manlyness that can phsycologically allow you to lift heavier wieght?

    Im sorry i disagree with you, if it happens it happens. But no it is not out of attention seeking. If im doing a 1rm the last thing im thinking about is watch bicep curling moron is looking at me nor do i care about attracting them with masculan verbalisaiton..

    The Rules of Grunting

    • It is acceptable to grunt at any weight during the latter half of a work set
    • It is not acceptable to grunt during the latter half of a work set if the lifter was grunting at the same weight six weeks earlier
    • Grunting any time during one-rep and three-rep maxes is okay
    • Sub-max grunting is permissible from rep three of a five-rep set with escalation to all-out grunting acceptable from the fourth rep
    • The spotter is never allowed to grunt in empathy
    • The lifter is to never emit a victory grunt after a particularly good set, but the rule shall be occasionally waived when a personal best is set

    NIce Mini..lol

    I find I dont grunt much, occasionaly i may, but generally if i am on a last rep of a set and I feel I am close to failure I may umm swear at the bar, I am particulary fond of "Get the, FK up there" the emphasis is expelled as a gruntish sound..and the desired result... I can only remember doing this on bench.

    I was always taught in martial arts to expell air or noise as you strike. I do the same when pushing weights I struggle with. Grunting is subconcious for me and far from a cry of attention, having said that I have my own gym setup and the only person who hears is my spotter. I think I would make an effort to silence somewhat if I was in a gym.

    LOL

    I agree Fadi, grunting is believable when maxing out and it's true you ain't no Sharipova.

    I never take it seriously. If it happens it happens.

    When my kid was a little tot she would grunt for me when ever I was squatting.

    It's all fun.

    Just don't scream and throw weights around. That stupid gorilla attention seeking crap gets old real quick with me.....

    For me only acceptable attention seeking in the gym is from:

    a) Checking out your pumped muscles in the mirror - while standing directly under the most favorable lights.

    b) Training with respectable poundages or tenacity.

    BUT

    attention seeking antics...... those are the guys who you offer give a spot on bench press...... Let them know what maxing is all about. LOL. Just one more... hold it.... and another one.... with me.... now isometric hold....for 10 seconds...... now one more..... youve got it.... its all yours.... last rep takes a good many seconds..... To grunt or not to grunt..... they will decide for themselves
