Deep Squats

Now that is ass to grass!

If somebody ever tells you that they squat low when they go down to 90 degrees, show them this picture and you won’t have to explain how full of shit they are. It’ll do it for you.

Damn, thats just fuckin low.

thats how I low I go usually.

What I usually do is get about that low, then sit my ass on the ground, then bring my legs up and wrap them around my neck. Getting back up is a bitch, though.

what do you do with the bar while you’re wrapping your legs around your neck?
Or do they go over the bar?

I wrap that around my neck too.

yeah my girlfriend does that too. brings a whole new meaning to the phrase " work on my snatch ".

“Friends don’t let friends squat high”

A credo I live by.

I love snatch work. But doesn’t that fall under “cardio”?

For those who may not know, this lifter is considered by many to be the greatest snatcher of all time. His best lift was 195.5kg in the old 90kg weight category done in 1983 I think. His training best was something like 205kgs. done at a time when the superheavyweight world record was around 202.5-203kgs. So he is definately someone who can be considered ahead of his time.

Is that Yurik Vardanian?

Blagoev is his last name. Dunno about his first.
