This man is my inspiration! Hahaha.
1 - How is he a nerd?
2 - Could he get any more depth on that?
3 - I counted 6 plates a ride; 6X45X2 = 540 without bar... He says 420lbs...
4 - So...about depth? Those pins could go farther down...
I think it's supposed to be a joke.
Hence the dramatic music and buildup...
In case your sarcasm meter has been broken recently, I was kidding.
While his squat is sad, I had to look (And laugh) at his website.
For only $98, you can have all the quote, "Magic," muscle building, "Secrets."
You will also get ahold of insider shortcuts!
let's not forget:
"Increase strength levels exponentially, like: 20%-50% in 60 days."
I used to think exponentially meant something different, but middle school must have taught me wrong.
Forever Goal: Strength
Weightlifting sucks. I just like to lift heavy things.
That video makes me cringe, I wonder how many uninformed people watch that kind of thing and think thats the right way to squat, his ROM must be all of 3 inches.
Cant wait till payday then I can unlock the secrets......

I figured with all the posts in the section of the forum, this was not a sarcastic one (I really had to think). I leave sarcasm to the general chat forum...
He's monkey madness.
check out some of the other vids on there, those are impressive, like the tom platz squatting 500 for 23 reps, plus the olympic lifter squatting 650 plus olympic style ass to calfs

I thought he was going to bite it when he stepped out.
Never shall innocent blood be shed, yet the blood of the wicked shall flow like a river. The Three shall spread their blackened wings and be the vengeful striking hammer of God.
1/8 squat 495
That was pathetic, the guy didnt even do quarter squats, my bet iis he might be able to full squat 315.

Squats work better than supplements.
"You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

I was wondering if he was ever going to do a real rep 0.0
Ron Coleman"everybody wanna be a bodybuilda, but nobody wanna lift this heavy ass weight....i do it though...lightweight."
LOL, other than the funny stuff, does anyone know the name of the tune playing in the original video?
Age: 25 Height:5/9" Weight: 180lbs/ 80kgs
Current PR's (updated 19th March.)
Bench: 325lbs/ 145kgs
Dead: 395lbs/ 180kgs
Squat: 370lbs/ 165kgs x 1 parallel.
5 plates each side, look like 20kg/44lbs + 20kg/44lbs for the bar makes 220kg/484lbs. It says 2x, that makes him 110kg/242lbs and a lot of that is fat.
Guessing his true 1 rep max could be a lot lower as he probably isn't accustomed to bending his knees that far and would have to retrain to get there.
Pity the video doesn't show his legs, were we supposed to be impressed by his back or his legs ?
