Only three of those squats I would say are high. wide stance squatting, and high bar/close stance will look very different at and slightly below parallel.


Are you talking about the SPF video or the OP?

In the SPF video, all of them were, that was the whole point of the video. High SPF squats and shitty SPF judging.

Did you only watch 3? That would explain it.

I love how that monolift is shoved in the corner of the gym.

IPF legal? No. SPF legal? Yes. People seem to be forgetting that was 605 for 5, belt only, training lift.



Nowhere near parallel. Nowhere near "legal" IPF depth either. Not even close. The spotter isn't even watching for depth. You blind? Maybe give up the "hand loving" as you will go blind.

That said, it's a training work set. And he's not competing in powerlifting..... yet.

The advantage of working to proper depth is that you will end up lifting less weight so your joints and tendons are delaing with a lighter load but your are getting a much better workout stimulus. At that depth the hips and hams are barely being engaged. Full depth and suddenly you are training your lower body.

Thanks for looking out for my ham and glute development. I appreciate your concern.

I think the OP is aware that the squats are not to legal powerlifting standard depth (hence the title of the 2nd video) however getting used to 600+ on your back for 5 reps (at 80% of depth) is probably going to help him in the long run. Given that he pulls over 700 I would think that this is more of a mental sticking point than a physical weakness on the OP's part, and I for one applaud him bringing some attention to fat squatters everywhere, WE'RE HERE WE"RE FAT GET USED TO IT!!!

Please post a video of you lifting at least 50% of what the OP posted.

That sounds logical. So explain how the OP can deadlift 725 if his hips and hams are weak.

Jamie Lewis disagrees with you.

very nicely put. there is a time and place for high squats. admittedly for me it is usually when my training partners are out of town, but I have seen AJ Roberts talk about squatting to a higher box for multiple reasons, as well as Louie, and others that have had 1000+ on their backs. training squats and comp squats are not the same, but 17 year olds who have maxed 315 want to make them so

Well technically he put the monolift near the palm trees. Although word is the palm trees are being leveled for a oly platform.
