Dude, take a valium...no need to white knight it to his rescuse; they were valid comments. Everyone said they were impressive and any ensuing critique is sometimes just an observation - not a condemnation or an evaluation of his training methods...someone made the comment that its insane - it was NOT insane at all...it would have been insane had he broke parallel b/c then the feat would have been truly impressive. Otherwise, its not all that impressive. That doesn't mean he aint a strong, or as you put it explosive, mo fo...or, that he isn't training correctly for his sport...it just is what it is...an observation. 20 ,15 and 3 above parallel squats to me is NOT impressive at those weights...well, let me qualify that - depending on how long rest between the 315 and 405, the 405 - even half assed for 15 WAS impressive. I think folks were more reacting to the characterization that it was "insane" rather than what the guy was actually doing or his performance. Lighten up! And before you attack me, yes, I can do 315 for 20 - legal and without a belt - not sure about the 405 for 15 but I'm all fast twitch and I assure you I get the 500x3 legal. The only thing that would challenge me is that 405 for big reps.
Now feel free to flame me and tell me he'd whip my ass, etc. LOL. But before you do, I'm just telling you I don't think anyone here (at least I wasn't) intended to criticize the guy - they just made observations.
And yes, I agree with you, unless you're a powerlifter ( I am ) or a bodybuilder, the parallel or below parallel squat thing is overrated. When I played pro-b ball, my vert was 40" and I lived on partial jump and explosive squats and I never went to parallel. So we do agree in spirit.
