    This is why Alen Daryl and max are training with set weights and increasing reps

    Here is something to ponder,

    What is lost on most trainee's is that for the most part, all they will ever do is train.

    They will never step on a platform and either power-lift or Olympic lift.

    And, all those trainee's that say they are bodybuilders, 99.9% of them will never stand on the dais and pose for judges.

    So where does that leave us?

    Training for the sake of training or training to improve the quality of life?

    If a trainee is unable to squat 200kg within a few months of training they have no business competing.

    Thank you oh wise one.

    See micheal, your 180kg+ squats at under 80kg prove you have no business competing.

    If I were you, I'd have a break and do some BB. Good luck man.

    Riiiiiiiiight...

    I'd like to see any sub-heavyweight trainee make 200kg in only a few months, I'd shake their hand and give them a bloody medal.

    At 23 and two knee operations, I would be interested to see what this fellow looks like at 43.
    But, if that's your version of manliness good luck.

    Now your talking about the op? The one who HAS competed on the platform?

    I get what your saying, but you crack me up.

    Have you taken your meds too early today?

    I'm not completely sure, but I think you're on a powerlifting and bodybuilding site.

    If the only people who ever compete are the guys who could squat 200kg in only a few months then you'll probably be lucky to have 2 people in a competition. Seems like a really dumb statement to me.
