Squat 225X52


#1

Wow this absolutely crazy, I can't believe that somebody would want to do this or want to put their body through this. And all of that at just 165lb BW.


#2

Impressive, but looks like he is wearing a blouse...


#3

occlusion squats? i dunno, a tourniquet on the thigh kinda of seems like a recipe for fainting or something... bad.


#4

i guess it is impressive because hes only 165, but as far as that weight and the way he was squatting(i'm assuming for someone of a height closer to average), i don't find that very impressive honestly


#5

52 of anything is pretty impressive. he beats me by about 30 reps, and i have more than 40 lbs on his body weight.


#6

He is also lunging 405 fucking pounds. THAT is amazing.


#7

Um, if he did that at 30 lbs heavier that would be impressive. I knew when I read this thread that someone would be hating and there would be a "his form needs work" mention.


#8

Strong guy, no doubt.


#9

dont be naive, the only reason i mentioned his form is because i find personally that when i use a similar technique, i only use about half the energy it takes to squat the way i normally do (and i also found that i got better growth when i didnt use that type of technique either, for what its worth)


#10

What technique are you talking about? Not locking out? It is generally harder...


#11

try it and see, really (unless you already squat that way, then try another technique to notice any differences)

i would be just fumbling around if i were to try to explain without showing video (especially to those that dont want to hear it (i dont know if you personnally do or dont, DaveyD)


#12

That's breathing squats taken to a whole new level...:slightly_smiling:

Reminds me of the 8 minute squat routine...look it up on this site.

So, he's probably doing his 20rm or whatever for 50 reps.

Also, not locking out probably saved his knees. I mean shit fuck he's doing 50 goddamn reps I don't care how the fuck he does them provided it's a good effort and not some gay personal trainer 1/4 squat.


#13

definitly not knocking the cajones, tough stuff


#14

your a doosh bag :\


#15

Very impressive. Not much else to say.


#16

If you read the side info it says he did a lot of heavy squats before that, and that he thinks he could probably do 75 reps.


#17

Insanity...


#18

the 405 lb. lunge is insane.. this guy is a freak.. and he says he ran a marathon a week later wtf?

pretty serious lifts at his weight..


#19

ummm again fml

:slight_smile:

ilr614, i agree, i'd go as far to say that my personal perception of what is most impressive in the weight room is my greatest character flaw. Please counsel me so i can live up to your golden, 10 post, '09 standard.
