Vogelpohl Squats 1180


#1

Today at the Lexen Pro/Elite Coaltion meet in Columbus, Ohio.


#2

Video isnt working for me, but that's a fucking strong squat.


#3

#4

Embarrassing depth.


#5

Strong.

#7

I want to see the side judges viewpoint before casting doubt. They passed it, so I will give Chuck the benefit of the doubt for now.


#8

There are way worse squats out there to complain about depth on.For an 1180 squat, that's pretty damn legit. Chuck is a legend.


#9

Just because there is a lot of weight on the bar doesn't mean you get to squat high. That said, depth is very hard to judge from that front, looking up angle.


#10

Sick Squat!!! I heard he missed 1205 on his 4th attempt, I can't wait to see him squat 1200+


#11

haha I always find it comical that the guys that hate on squats, usually are no name lifters who will never achieve and elite total in any federation.


#12

Agreed, which is why I want another angle. As it stands, the side judges passed the lift, so till I see otherwise, Chuck did it and dammit its impressive.


#13

I LOVE HIM SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!


#14

All hail the King!


#15

lol @ raw and USAPL lifters bitching about something that doesn't affect them in any way.

Chuck's a beast. And it looks like Danny Dague put on another good show.

There is a new interweb rule: judging depth from a front-view taken video and calling it high makes you ghey. Double ghey if you have never competed multi-ply. There, new rule in the books. live by it.

#18

So it is written, so shall it be done.


#19

You can tell on some lifts if they're high from the front, just not this one. And yes, I've competed double-ply, single-ply and raw.

You absolutely need a side angle to judge this . I was a national referee when the adfpa just started for point of reference.

A few years back I saw Angelo Berdandnelli,sp, squat about 800 lbs. I watched from the side fifteen ft away on my hands and knees and he broke parallel.

From the video from the front it looked at least four inches high .
