Not sure if this has been posted before but just a badass man, some unreal squatting.

been posted, but it doesn’t get old.

it has, but it’s still awesome.

Best youtube comment ever:

“Kirk could lift youtube.”

i told one of my friends one time (i was entoxicated at the time, he told me the next morning) that he many have hawt abs, but i could bench press his soul.

At 5:25 you’ll see 800x5 raw done a few weeks before the 1000x2.

hell, I’ve not seen this before and was expecting some “borderline” parallel squat by some big “fat” dude, but jeez, that’s just about as impressive as anything I’ve ever seen.

One of the greatest squatters of all time in one of the most insane training vids of all time.

I still remember the article in PLUSA featuring Capt. Kirk and there was this litany of questions about how to improve one’s squat.

To every question he answered, “Squat.” How about leg press, how about good mornings, how about leg extensions? “You get better at squatting by squatting.”

I will never forget about 15 years ago when I was lucky enough to be sitting at the same table for lunch with him and Coan. The waitress commented on the size of his legs. He pulled up the leg of his shorts and flexed his quad. She almost fainted. The size of his legs was truly stunning.

The rest of us just laughed and felt small.

The guy is a mule. Absolutely an all time great and almost unequaled squatter.

Just awesome. 800 x 5 RAW is crazy as well.

Does anybody know what his best squat ever was for a single?

Wow…just insane, it’s gotta be those shorts though.

Walked it out, made it look easy, and then held it for a bit… He’s a fucking tank.
