275 x 30 ATG Squats - Took Me Forever, But I Eventually Made it


#1

videos low quality because I did it on my phone, but its viewable I hope. If nothing else you can tell 2 things. 1) i squat low and 2) i took tooks some long breaks catching my breath and hopefully you can kinda see that it is 275

or if you cant see it


#2

Nice, where’s it at?


#3

Damn, you tough SOB!

Hah, you stopped the video right before the part where you dropped to the floor and puked all over yourself, didn’t you? :wink:

Yeah, after a tough set of squats, I sometimes just fall on the ground face-up a breathe for a minute or so. I was wondering if he was going to do the same.

I stopped it right before i hit the floor. i didnt puke but i laid there for 30 seconds or so. i probably would have laid there for longer if i didnt know the camera was still going.

Great job man. Props.


#10

Nice.


#11

I thought for sure somebody would give me shit for how long it took and the long pauses between my bursts. My friend did.

I didn’t think the time was too bad. Although I was a little worried on some of them it looked like you were rounding your back a lot.


#14

Major props. The mental fortitude it takes to do that is inspiring. My near term goal is to be able to do 225X20. Great job.


#15

How is it called 275x30 when you stop and rest? btw- cool nonetheless, I’d be buried long before reaching 15
