    Surely only doing squat/deadlift/bench would create an unbalanced physique?

    I have never understood this about powerlifting. In those three moves you don't work the lats, medial or posterior delts or biceps. How do powerlifters avoid injury from underdeveloped muscles?

    Do tell me that you are not trolling. What are the synergists and stabilizers when doing the bench press? What is accessory/assistance work in PL for?

    Do some rows, pull-ups, OHP and curls for assistance and you should be fine.

    Powerlifting is not for you then, switch to bodybuilding/bodyparts with 15 sets of curls/tricep kickbacks and then wonder why you are 132lbs with girl arms. Suppose you want to ask if you should train legs because you cycle to school/work?

    You just named the muscles used in a deadlift.

    Maybe you just need to stop talking and go lift. Don't think just lift. Don't argue just lift. No excuses. Just do it.

    Contrary to all the answers here, I believe that OP is right. I've been powerlifting for nearly 2 years and while these 3 movements made me thicker and larger, they didn't give me the aesthetic look i.e. my delts, biceps and chest was lacking. I recently started doing things like lateral raises, bicep curls and incline db pressing and have noticed difference already, without it affecting my performance in the big 3.

    Here is a test for you...

    If you are lean enough to see your muscles when you flex deadlift without a shirt on and video yourself from behind. I'm about 10% body fat and did this I stayed relaxed as I got into deadlift position and as soon as I started the lift I was amazed that it looked like every muscle was flexed to the max...lol. Highly unscientific bro science, but it does give you a visual to see for yourself.

    So you are stating that you have only just discovered/heard of assistance work?

    No powerlifter only trains the big 3. Rows, chins, or cleans are added to everyone's programs. I have never seen a good powerlifting program that doesnt have some assistance work.

    I have never understood this about powerlifting. In those three moves you don't work the lats, medial or posterior delts or biceps. How do powerlifters avoid injury from underdeveloped muscles?

    its called accessory work. if you want to have a good powerlifting total your entire body needs to be strong. if you learn how to properly squat, bench, and deadlift you would know that your accessory work is there to work on all of those muscles groups you mentioned in your post. your first job is to go to the gym and ask an experienced powerlifter the proper form for the squat, bench, and deadlift. and please don't try and tell me that you do know because if you did you would have never asked this question in the first place.

    also it does go to show that powerlifters can learn a lot from bodybuilders and vice versa. powerlifters do tend to get caught up with the big three and neglect the accessory work and bodybuilders too often get caught up focusing in on the minor muscle groups and shying away from the compound "meat and potatoes" movments.

    who said you were only going to do those 3 moves?

    do you think bodybuilding automatically makes a balanced body??? u must not pay much attention to those around u in the gym then

    It might lead to an unbalanced physique, but it is much less common than those walking around with huge arms, huge chest, and tiny legs.

    so true. Or thinking that having a very skinny waist and no muscles at all onyour chest or arms makes you "ripped"

    This. I hate accessory work and do only a minimum amount. Yet I still do push presses, rows, weighted pullups, etc.

    If by a balanced physique you mean someone who only does bench, curls, and abs, then yes, powerlifting sucks in that regard.
    But srsly, like everyone else said, nobody does only squat bench and deadlift. And even if they did, I think their body would be balanced enough, especially compared to what most people in most gyms have, not even considering the people who don't do anything.
    Meet: 440/248/485 = 1173@144 sp 04/2012

    Goal: 485/264/551 = 1300@163 sp 04/2015

    Well powerlifting is only*really powerlifting during a competition in which the 3 lifts are done (i worded that oddly but i hope the point gets across)

    as was already said, who only does the bench, squat, and DL? no one.*

    *a true PLer does work in the gym to improve the 3 lifts for competition. and assistance lifting is an important part of that*
    PRs
    Squat -- 455
    Bench -- 290
    Deadlift -- 565
    Overhead -- 185x3
    Power Clean -- 250

    God damn these threads are stupid. You get a bunch of powerlifters (that probably don't even compete) touting how anything aesthetic related is ridiculous, then on the opposite side you have a bunch of meatheads that say powerlifting is just retarded.

    Train the lifts you need, simple as that. Some people need different lifts than others.

    One can certainly powerlift successfully while maintaining a decent looking physique. *IMO, letting your physique go to poopoo just to obtain strength in the 3 big lifts isn't the best plan anyways. *But......different strokes for different folks just like bomb said. *

    Kaz had a good approach. His routine looked like hi volume bodybuilding and then he'd do a linear peaking routine to get ready for a meet but even then he kept some high volume on assistance movements

Highly unscientific bro science, but it does give you a visual to see for yourself.
    There only one exercise that can be done with your shirt off, and that is cable crossovers/concentration curls supersets.
