465 Squat PR


#1

Finally hit a PR on squat. Haven't had much progress since my USAPL meet last July, but things are looking much better right now. Looking forward to hitting my first 5 plate soon!

I’ve been a little cautious of this lately, but I’ll work more on it. Thanks.

Nice job bro.

Go Chiefs.


#9

very good lifts man… also gangsta points for callin out the Alpha Male bs that seems to be prevalent in this scene…


#10

Nice vid, makes me want to leave work and hit the gym. I recently bought the Adipowers, you like?


#11

Great lifts. I may be saying too much but do you think slightly widening your stance and just a tad of angle of your toes pointing out (30 degrees) may help with the buckling of the knees in the squat and also help you move heavier weight? Looks like a 495 squat is very close.


#12

impressive video!..what programs have you run and what program are you currently running.?


#13

Nice squat.
Voice over soso. I take it you are not a motivational speaker. ha

I have been toying around with a lot of stances and just haven’t found anything that has worked and felt natural at the same time. The more I train, the more I realize I am a complete beginner and know little/nothing lol.

Bench is progressing at a very nice pace, and my pull is slowly working back up to where it was my last meet. I’ve been focusing on my squat for quite a while so my deadlift hasn’t moved much. There was a 155 pound gap between the two at my last meet, so I’d like to close that lol.
