I’ve been a part of the powerlifting community for a little while. I’ve seen a bunch of powerlifting meets live online and I’ve seen three in person since I’ve competed in three.
What you see some lifters do is that they scream or do loud grunts before a lift at a powerlifting meet. I’m sure some of you seen lifters do this before they lift and you probably know what I’m talking about.
To me, I think it’s an ego thing for sure but that’s just my opinion. It’s just them saying, “Hey look at me, I’m about to do a big lift and you better be watching”.
Some of you are gonna defend them by saying it’s a ritual kind of thing and just them trying to get into the zone but I don’t think so. Thoughts???
