You know you're a powerlifter when...
You get a headache and a bloody nose from tying your shoes.

You have huge arms and small biceps.

You are extremely fuscular (fuscular is a large amount of muscle mass covered in fat).

Plan business trips according to what big gyms are in the area.

Get excited by popped blood vessels.

220's and below are the little guys.

When it is mentally painful to use high reps.

When you own more polyester suits than Disco Stu.

When your wife asks if you liked the dinner she cooked, you respond by giving her 3 white lights.

When you eat during your workout.

When you consider high reps to be anything above 4.

When you are constantly looking for a gym bag big enough to store all your gear.

When you get a bicep cramp from talking on the cell phone for more than two minutes.

When you're worried your hands may be getting too fat for deadlifts.

If you can only eat a chicken breast if it's covered in mayonnaise.

you have more chalk and baby powder than an octogenarian school teacher.

When you poop yourself squatting.

You start calling depth on deadlifts.

When you imagine locking out a deadlift during sex...

Fuscular -- yes!

When you are constantly running through equations in your head trying to get a higher total.

When you fall asleep dreaming of a squat PR you want to hit tomorrow.

When you keep a running track on the number of times you get out of your chair as to not effect squat day!

When people call you to help move,but nobody else.

When you train your abs, but are still fat!

When missing a lift causes you to remain awake all night and rethink your entire programming, diet, and if you did something silly like carry in too many groceries.

This thread is great.
When you practice your box squat form every time you sit down.
When you instal a taller toilet in your house so you have easier time to get down when your legs are sore.

Haha - almost all the above apply to me. I now know what I am. Finally, I am out of no-man's land:rockon:
