This is the best line I've read in a long time, and its the absolute truth. Powerlifters look different because of a number of things. We don't need to get ripped to be competitive, a bigger bodyweight could help with leverages depending on how you are built, the style of training, the diets we use (or don't use). The fact is, you need to do the work to get strong. KISS applies here. Keep It Simple Stupid.
