Having a great beard isn’t just a useful tool for pulling incredible women, storing leftover food for later, or cushioning your face from punches to help you win a streetfight, there are also some very un-scientific rumors that it can even help you lift heavier weights. Debate in weightrooms across the world wages on – what’s manlier – beard or no beard? And furthermore, which style of beard will truly show the world what an alpha beast you are? And most importantly – which style is going to help you lift the most weights?
This could be a classic example of correlation not equaling causation, because an epic beard probabally hints at an already-elevated level of testosterone, so it leaves us in a chicken and egg situation. What came first, the beard of the gains?
And not every style of beard is going to be created equal. This helpful info-graphic will take you over some of the best styles of beards, and it’s obviously the “OLD DUTCH” who can lift the heaviest because of that farmer strength.
The real trick is to grow a beard long enough that you can wrap it around the weight and use it to spot yourself should you run into trouble. Don’t listen to anybody who tells you that beard-reps don’t count. They do.
