    I know this isn;t lifting related but i wanted to vent.
    a while back in DFW i met a group of power lifters. BAG Bad attituede gym.
    the 2 main guys i met seemed like good guys. Very friendly and " broly" as you guys say.
    so i started reading their board and posting on there.

    well. aparently because i dont SQ or DL ( bad back injury) im not HARD core enough for most of them.. but mostly of one member who was apparently some big PL back in the day.

    So i posted my little bench vid to share my achievement with people who i thought would appreciate it. All i got was BS and flaming because i had a sporter close to or touchingthe bar. yeah. i know i had a spotter. it was my 2nd fucking time REPPING 505. it seems 90% of the people on there are barely pushing over that SHIRTED and yet i get flamed for a raw repped 505.

    it was really just a slap in the face to get his bull shit from people i thought where pretty hard core and respectable.. I guess i wont be going back there any soon. Looks like you guys are stuck with my Soft core Pussy no lifting self.

    boohoo, a powerlifting INTERNET FUCKING FORUM made you feel bad. RB is one of the worlds biggest shit talkers, don't worry about it - he has been lifting for 15-20 years and hasnt totalled elite, it says a lot. He feels the need to flame other people's accomplishments. and guess what..... he doesnt even train at BAG. don't let the views of a few guys giving you shit take away from BAG. BAG is becoming one of the best PL gyms in the country - hence why they have a 710lb Bench @ 198, BDR, and some of the best drug free lifters out there as well.


    and just to play devil's advocate here... b/c you mentioned their shirted benches being just slighty higher than your raw bench.... BAG has 9 lifters in the 500lb club, all (but one @ 275) did it at 242 or less.

    well. i found out why im hated there.
    so. i dont SQ or deal. I have a herniated and chipped l5s1. If i put more then 300lbs on my shoulders, thats it. no walking for a week. The wife pretty much told me, NO FUCKING squats..

    so.. because i dont squat or DL.. im not good enough for the members. the sad thing is i spoke to the main guy there, a fellow named sean who is a BAD mother fucker and a big lifter, and he knows i have nothing but respect for him.

    I guess now i lose out on the info of some big lifters because i am not willing to give up the ability to walk and my marriage to squat.

    I see nothing wrong with you posting on BAG. You haven't pretended to be anything you're not and you're not trying to train there. RB LOVES to start shit with people on the internet!!

    Sean and phil invited me to train at BAG, but like i told them, im not into ORM or shirted benching. I like to see what i can do in a t-shirt and sweat pants. Thats my " type" of lifting.
    I guess to each his own..

    I think it's cool that you were upfront with what you wanted. I see nothing wrong with your personal goals and wish you the best of luck in achieving them. A 500 pound raw bench is bad ass!!

    :mamoru: i remember when the Raw Bench Competition thread went up on BAG, RB flamed it off the bat and cave came in and basically kicked the table out from under him

    then it got moved to the flame board which lurkers like myself have no access to :wtc:
