how the helll you managed to do that on your toes I will never know;
Holy **** dude.
I was thinking... is that box going to hold him and all that weight!! lol Awesome Lift Bro! Just CRAZY!
haha I noticed the toes thing too. I'd have fallen right on my face! Good work Rob
Naw... he was just being lazy trying to get box squats and calf raises done at the same time. :D Seriously though, impressive 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!
wow dude, all i have to say is that is rediculous and your knees must be SO STRONG, please be careful haha
Can you, or anyone else explain why you're squatting off the balls of your feet?
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.
Hey Rob, have u heard about the Raw meet Jon Grove is putting on Atlanta? its April 19th i think, 6 weeks away. I am pretty sure im gonna do it, and there should be a good turnout. You think u can make this one?
And u better show up in a pair of Boots or im gonna be on u like Tonya Harding's BF on Nancy Kerrigan! haha.... Seriously!
i squat in sneekers too, i get ripped about it.
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.
Awesome work, your one big dude.
wow. thats all i can say.
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.
OK I got timberlands i will try out when I squat.
I really enjoyed watching your video, that kind of weight just boggles my mind.
