If you were judging my squat how many reps out of the 7 would you give me? This is a new PR for me but I'm my own worst critic and I know how many I would give myself but I want to know what other people think!!!

Come on people!! 15 people have viewed it but no messages. All you have to do is count! I promise I wont make you count past 7!

They all looked parallel or slightly lower to me.

All 7. 5 looked below and 2 looked right at parallel.

7 for sure mate. Remember, not all the people that have viewed the thread are necessarily users as opposed to guests, so they might not be able to post without signing up.

All 7 looked pretty good. Form looks good maybe you can stay tighter, but with reps it's hard.

I agree with this.

Hey Ben, you want to know the sad thing. No one uses that Monolift!!! I'm the only person that I know of who uses it and I dont even use it right cause no one else is in that room. At my gym there is a whole powerlifting room with that monolift, compitition bench, squat rack, incline bench, GHR and other various things. I have only seen one other person in over a year in that room with me! Quite sad since a monolift is such a rare useful tool!

Well hell, tell them they need to donate it to some poor deserving people in Kansas City...

I tried to "embed" it but it wouldn't work. This is the first vid I have put on wannabebig so I'm not sure if I was doing it right. I just copied and pasted it but it just showed up at jibrish!

Why the belt and knee wraps @ 235lbs? Do you have back and knee problems?

Because I'm a b*tch at squatting! I do tend to get some pain in my left knee but other than that the belt keeps my abs tight. I can push my belly out against it!

I understand, some people always train squats with belt/wraps, but if you don't have a back problem I would drop the belt for now and let your spine erectors get stronger until you're working with more weight. If you're doing heavy pulls without a belt you don't need to worry about it. But you're already squatting more than me, so don't take it the wrong way!

I give you all 7, i say your form could use a little work but if thats where your comfortable then its all good, nice work.
