As I'm sure most of you have heard, there is a white guy on this forum who posts under the name "SquatDr", he inspires many with his claims of a 50" standing vert and 55.5" running vert, but does recent evidence prove him to be a fraud?
I don't really care that much, but i've enjoyed some of his words on training philosophy. It's apparent to me that he is well over a forty inch VJ and that he is very athletic, so why would he need to lie about a few extra inches?
Regardless, he has never come off as a showy personality to me, he has merely answered questions about himself when asked. Besides, the only reason anyone would want to prove him wrong is because their insecure about their own abilities.
Let the man be, and if he is a fraud he'll be the one looking for attention.
I haven't really looked at too much of this, but is the argument about whether he is world class or....world class? I mean, why is this a big enough deal to bring it on here? What...does he only squat 3x bodyweight and have a 40 inch vertical jump? I guess I'll wait to call this stupid until I've read more.
that thread was very suprising. i tend to want to believe ppl with their verts but everyone seems to be inflating them so it gets hard to do that. he's def. got a 40+/44+ standing/running vert but i doubt it's 50/55.5 so he def. inflated it (until i c a vid of him actually doing it). still tho, a 44+ in. running vert means he would be right up there in the nba for the top verts which is great.
if adarqui reads this it seems like we both agree that he's inflating his numbers but what would u think his actual vert is?
i don't think his standing vert would even break 40.. i have not seen one thing that indicates he is capable of it.. i tend not to believe his 50/55.5 pictures, since he can't legitimize them with video (that he claims he has)..
i'd say he's sub 40 on standing vert and anywhere from 40-45 on his running.. probably around 42".
the different between say, 38" SVJ / 44" RVJ and 50" SVJ / 55.5" RVJ is astronomical.. when you basically claim stats > 99.9999% of the human population, then use it as advertising on your site, you better have have legitimate video to prove it.
that's my opinion..
i don't want to post alot in this thread, but since you specifically asked me a question i thought i'd respond.. if coolcolj or dan1990 decide on posting then you'll probably see me posting alot.
matrick, that's very true. i've heard of some 44's but not sure how accurate that is (lebron, nate, james white has to be 44+, gerald green, maybe others) i'm not for sure but i'd have to say the only player i no that should have a 44 in. running vert would be nate robinson i couldn't c it bein lower than that so squat dr would still be in very elite company.
