All I do at work is quote Arnold.

This is the kinda shit my co-workers say on FB. They work at the bar as well.



Hit a heavy set of FYYYYYYYVE on deadlifts today. Felt real good and smooth off the floor. I did some weird head thing on the last rep for some reason. My front squats felt slow as shit. They don’t look too bad in the video. Most likely from fatigue post-deadlifting.

Here is the video.



This shit gets white lights at a Westside meet.



Don’t get me wrong. This guy can probably squat more than I ever will, raw. He should be embarrassed to say this is his squat. It’s a bad fucking joke. To make it worse it’s fucking celebrated afterwords. Shit like this disgusts me. It’s like falling 2 yards short of a touch-down and then getting up convinced that you scored.

  1. I hope to see this guy squat at a raw meet, I guess he would probably squat a lot in that too. But this is just indeed a joke. What federation is this and what are the rules, isn’t the highest squat for a federation that the underside of your thigh has to be parallel? Even for that he wasn’t close.

    It’s a Westside invitational. He’s high regardless of any federation, anywhere on the planet. Steve Goggins had some good FB posts/Tweets about that.

  2. My guess is your front squats felt slow because you went beardless.

    Thanks for responding to my email, by the way. Appreciate the advice man.

    I appease the lady my friend. Hey no problem btw.

  3. … and that is why powerlifting is seen as a joke by many.

  4. I’d rather see someone go parallel or below with 225 then stop it short with 315.

    (this is seen frequently where I lift, except replace 315 with 225)

  5. Can you even get parallel with that wide of a stance? It just seems like the anatomy would be all out of whack to get any lower than he does. I know the gear plays a part, but it can only do so much.

    I know a couple sumo-style squatters. They are very flexible.
