    I dont understand people that do powerlifting with mediocre lifts

    Dont even try compare it to playing basketball/soccer because doing those are fun, everyonen is game to play them and its not srs

    But people that do powerlifting and risk injury and lift for no reason (not even financial gain) blow my mind. If you are an elite lifter and you are close to breaking state/national records, i get it. But if you are someone that has been powerlifting for 5 years and cant even deadlift 600lbs its time to give it up srs

    Some people enjoy the sport and the structure. All 900lbs deadlifters were once 600lb pullers.

    There are people that use power lifting techniques to supplement their sport. They don't care about being world champs, they just want to be more explosive.

    A lot of people do. Or people do it to just see how strong they can get? I feel like that's a fun thing to work on. I sometimes train for max strength just to see what happens, like pursuing a bodyweight bench or something. And, as others have said, to increase maximal force output for sports.

    But the rate of progression is still important. I see people on here powerlifting for 10 years and still only pulling 500, its ultimately a waste of time. Lifting for strength gains is fun, i like focusing on progressive overload as well as aesthetics, but solely lifting ONLY for strength whilst being a mediocre lifter aint it mane

    Some people just aren't genetically cut out for it, or aren't training/dieting correctly but just enjoy the process.

    Will agree that many use it as an excuse to be out of shape and eat whatever they want.

    Yeah PL is not worth the injury risk and the wear and tear on your joints and tendons. ESPECIALLY as you get older. It’s not worth it.

    You’re way better off lifting moderate weight for sets of 10 and putting less stress on your body for longevity and health.

    Yeah thats incorporating a little strength training, which is normal. But powerlifters solely lift for the big 3. I always cringe at the skinny deadlifters deadlifting 600lbs with 13 inch arms

    Exactly, like i said there is no reward at such a low level. You dont have financial gain, sponsorship etc. You are just doing it tonfill some beta ego

    being strong asf + low body fat is where it's at.

    Nothing worse than that 20-something asshat in the squat rack for 30 minutes, with chalk, an inzer belt, and chucks getting ready to sumo deadlift 335.

    They just enjoy looking like dwarves from LOTR, bringing a holdall full of bands, chains and chalk in tupperware boxes to the gym and wearing Romaleos to deadlift 3 plates. Leave them alone.
    In every society degenerate elements sink constantly to the bottom: spiritual and physical failures and inferiors. One has only to glance at the figures in meetings, processions and riots; they are all abortions, men who, instead of having healthy instincts in their body, have only heads full of disputatiousness and revenge for their wasted life. It is the dregs of the cities, the genuine mob, which everywhere constitute the opposition to the great and noble world, united in their hatred of it.

    -Setting goals to work towards achieving them.....gives the feeling of achievement and control in an otherwise mediocre and/or boring life.
    -It's fun and gives the person a sense of community/belonging to something bigger than them
    -Gives people something that they feel may differentiate them from the masses
    -It's a hobby that requires planning, attention, commitment and dedication that when done correctly pays off with satisfaction.
    -There literally is not end or state that you can get to where you will be "done" or have "completed" the project...which is yourself.

    -Obviously everyone cant and wont/don't even want to be elite level.....most do it for the fun/sport/competition of it.

    With your attitude....why even do anything if you're not top 1%....just LDAR

    You have to evaluate if the goal is worth anything though. Brb setting goal to count all the cracks in the pavement for feeling of accomplishment. What does that actually get you.

    And PL has a BIG cost in risk of injury and wear and tear on joints and tendons.

    So with that huge cost I don’t see how PL can pass any reasonable cost/benefit analysis. It might be fun but surely you can get fun from other activities too like lifting moderate weight or other active stuff like conditioning work etc.

    We get it. It's not worth it to you. So don't do it.

    OP, it's like a men's softball/baseball league. Some men do that chit. It's a hobby. They go out, get some physical activity, talk chit, and then go out for beers after.

    To me, that sucks ass and I would hate it, but I get it. It's a hobby.

    You really can't wrap your brain around that it's fun for people and it gives them physical and mental goals to work toward?

    Powerlifting is fun for those who find it fun regardless of how you personally feel about it. Some people think soccer is fun. Some think chess is fun. Some think counterstrike is fun. My point is, people compete because it's fun to test your skills against people no matter what you're into. Powerlifting is once such thing. Most people don't do the things they find fun to make money or break records, they do it because they enjoy it.

    Your statements about injury or record setting is completely irrelevant.
