Anytime I get more than 365 on the bar, I can't help but let out a grunt on the last couple reps. Nothing in the spirit of being obnoxious, but instead the grunts come as a side effect of mustering every ounce of strength in my body while battling the iron.
I can squat 405 for reps, and the general consensus from the regulars at my gym is that anyone who moves that much weight can make as much noise as they damn please. What's it like at your gym? Certainly there must be others who let out a squat grunt that would put the fear of God into anyone from the New Years Resolution Army!
Every time I squat heavy, I typically notice a handful of people looking at me with the "What the hell is wrong with this fella" look on their judging faces. Coupled with the knee wraps, I'm convinced every person at my gym who has never taken the time to have a conversation with me thinks I'm a grade-A freak show. Can't wait to see how they react once I finally hit five plates for reps
