Naw... he was just being lazy trying to get box squats and calf raises done at the same time. :D Seriously though, impressive lift!

awesome lift.

does coming up on your toes take away from targeting quads?

The only other person I've seen squat on the balls of their feet is Justin Harris' training partner in his DVD. I don't know how, or why, but that is A LOT of weight moved!

NO ****, on ur toes the whole time... AGAIN! Rob i have told u that u need to start squatting in a pair of combat boots or an OLY lifting type shoe. ur squat will go thru the roof when u can drive thru ur heels man. Im tellin ya man, stop bein stubborn and get some squat shoes with a raised heal.

Why skimp out on your training gear?

It astounds me, people will pay hundreds of dollars fpr gear and suppliment but bring up the topic of good foot weae and it becomes 'expensive'

With the weight you asre moving you would be an idiot to use anything but the Adidas Adistars.

just borrow a pair of boots, catipillers or something form somebody u know and try them out. hell go to wallmart, get a pair and train in them once or twice. if u dont like em take em back! im sure there is a place that sells refurbished shoes and boots. we have one here called beckys. u can get a really good pair for 20 bucks.

Probably not good to call him an idiot Fuzzy. I know what you were trying to say, but please refrain from doing that in the future.

Another good shoe is the Suede DoWins from Wersan for $89. Also the Safe shoes u see in PLUSA all the time. might be a good thread topic the OLY guys can help out with.

i sometimes use a pair a buddy gave me. they are the last model of addidas Oly shoes for the world team. the new model looks pretty kick ass, but yea they are pricey... so free sounds good to me.

Rob, im tellin ya, at least 50 pounds on ur squat and i would say closer to 75 or more.

they are if you have a really wide stance, not so good if you have problems comming up on your toes

just make sure they have a solid hard rubber sole. some of those timberlands have a squeeshy foam like bottom. u want a hard, combat/construction boot type bottom

Dang may have to pull out some of my old boots, not sure it will help me though. A thumb tack on a low box would probably work better. lol
