I am giving you a hard time because you came into this forum with what seemed like the intention of "showing us up".

Did you actually read my first post to the OP. Because you coming in and "laughing out loud" like it's all so stupid is going to cause me to run you through the ringer until you get mad and go away.

Other than that, most of the things you say are so vague they may as well be Hebrew. And that's as uncivil as I will get.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

I dont think it is a strength issue at all. I think it is a mental issue. You are getting siked out by your friends. You are also expecting too little from them and they know you are strong so they are givin it their best to compete. I also know a lot of people who are really strong in the gym and lack the strength when it comes to using outside the gym. You are not just pushing a weight no more. You are pushing around a weight with a mind and the ability to use your own strength against you. And talk a little smack too. Lol. I hope you understand what i am getting at.

People max on lifts to chart how far they've gained in strength. That's what they do in the Olympics. Am i speaking Hebrew? If your form is shit then you will 1. not lift the weight at all or worst 2. hurt yourself bad.

I'll stress again Power = Form.
Power = tempo.

Power is defined in the dictionary as work per unit of time. Meaning how fast you can generate a resistive force from point a to point b.

Power = work/time

Work = Force * Distance (ie Newtons * meters (Nm) )

Nm = Joule = J

Power = J/second = J/S = Watt

1 Horsepower = 746watts = 746N * 1m / 1s = 166lbf * 3.28ft / 1s

1 HP = 546lb * 1ft / 1s

So... if you can lift a 546lb weight straight up a distance of 1ft in 1 second then you are outputing 1HP. OR 273lb up 1ft in 1/2 second..... or something like that.

Just thought I would add some confusion by properly defining some terms being thrown around here.

Yeah. I'm supposed to be writing up an explanation on all that and you just reminded me of how lazy I am being (not...Joe helps me with the math).

I think everyone in this thread was using power in the popular sense as in "powerful, robust, forceful" or just strong. Which is completely incorrect from a physics or biomechanics standpoint, I realize.

Not many seem to understand just how much of a misnomer "powerlifting" is. It's funny that there is a feud between many powerlifters and Olympic lifters seeing that Olympic lifting could more correctly be called powerlifting.

But this made me think of the history of Olympic lifting and powerlifting and I kinda think that the name Powerlifting was used quite purposely since the "slow" lifts were treated like the hillbilly cousins of the high brow and technical fast lifts. I can see the attraction of appropriating the term power even if they were aware of it's technical incorrectness. But probably they just mean "strong".

It is important to stay safe while you are training using the weight lifting equipment. Safety always comes first. Training like a madman in the gym or at home will not get you the best and most optimal results. You need to take some time off and play some game on that Sport craft air hockey table and let your body have the time to rest. Make sure you read this article now if you are serious about weight training.
