thats a beastly squat but you’re not near an inch below parallel, more like 3 inches above parallel.

We do have a thread for this…

If you pause the video right at the bottom of the squat you can see that your hip joint is above your knees. You seem to lean forward quite a bit, causing your butt to stay up, making it hard to hit depth. You need to sit back a little more. This is not to discredit your accomplishment though, that’s a great squat.

thanks man,we tested me touching the box to test depth with my lean and from side view its an inch below,camera angle from front dosent help

12" box and you both thought he was above parallel from a front view only. LOL

dum dum dum dum dum…

I didn’t read about the box height, I was just going off of the video. I suppose it’s a pretty crappy camera angle throwing it all off.
