I don't know what your bit about, "for the equip haters," is about, but nevertheless it's a damn impressive lift for your bodyweight!!!

Great job. good squat. How do you like that Canvas? I myself have a double denim squat suit, which I am growing to love more and more.

That is great! Congratulations!

I am curious, what would you get with that depth with just a belt? Do you have any idea?

Thank you guys.

Maki- I just know that some guys are against equipment and that squat suit is about as hardcore as you can get. Thanks for the compliment though. :D

Bench- I love it. I thought from what everyone said that I should get one because I am strong at the top and slow out of the hole. So far I have used it twice and hit big PR's each time. Can't wait til my first meet in it. I use Metal briefs underneath it.


Chris- I'm really not sure. I don' go too heavy on rglar squats with just a belt. The only time I do is on l box squats belo parallel with a narrow stance. I have hit as high as like 320 or so on those. With as wide a stance as I go on comp squats I'd really beat up my hips maxing without some sort of briefs or suit. Maybe during my next cycle I will try some heavy squats with a narrower stance to see where I'm at.

That is awesome. You looked slow in the hole but still fought through, that's great focus!

No problem, I was just curious. I was not going to use your response as fodder for argument on the equipment issue, I just wanted to get an idea of how much difference you were getting with the stuff.

Well, Latty's low box squat is a little less than mine (my low box PR is 335, I think)

My 1RM in the gym with a belt and wraps with a narrow stance (so I fit in the rack) to USAPL depth is 425. I'd guess Latty is probably somewhere close to that.

It depends on a lot of factors, though - where each of us is weak, leverage, stuff like that.

Ace squat. B!tch. I can't believe you got through it considering how slow the ROM was. Good job.

That's pretty cool that you make vids to check your form. That squat is crazy. Your dead and squat are the same. weird.

How come your squat just shot up? It wasn't too long ago that you hit 4 plates, and now your flirting with 5?

Better form+Better gear= better squat :D
