    Double body weight squat plus other vids

    Video


    305lbs @ 148lb BW (or whatever I am right now, don't really know!) Shorts were a bit tight...

    Video


    265lbs. Does anyone know of any methods I could do to get a deeper squat? I feel like I should be able to go deeper.

    Video


    Still working on snatch form! Only 95lbs here.

    that seems deep enough for me.
    the only way you probably could go deeper (though i dont think you need to ) is to take a narrower stance.

    nice squatting, great speed on the way down. It really give you a good bounce out of the hole. Those squats are quite deep and in order to go deeper you will likely need a narrower stance and proper squat shoes.

    Deeper? Cut out part of your hamstrings or calves. Dude you are extremely deep already.

    Nice squatting and snatches.

    Seriously. Great squat form, very impressive.

    How much weight were those overhead squats?

    Ahh well, I just see some of the pros squat and it seems as though I'm not going as low as they are! Overhead squats were only 95lbs. Gotta get that way up!

    You're squatting about as Ass To Floor as you're physically capable of. That's the depth I call ATF when I ATF squat.

    I disagree about the descent. You can damage your knees by bouncing like that. It's a "reversal of the door hinge" effect. I would definitely work on slowing that down a bit, or learn to pop back up before your hamstrings make contact with your calves. Otherwise, you're setting yourself up for a blowout.

    Otherwise..great job, great form, great depth.

    I watched the vids again. Really, the 305 attempt was the only one that made me cringe. The other ones weren't at a scary speed, and the contact was just about right.

    Hmmm, I'm not really bouncing though (at least not intentionally); maybe it just looks like it... I guess it couldn't hurt to slow down! Thanks.

    Nice lifts man. You dive-bombed that squat and came up pretty easy. Put 3 plates on already.

    It's probably just the angle. Like I said, the 265's looked fine, so the 305 is probably fine as well, since we're more prone to be careful on the big ones.

    Chris is right...you smoked those squats.

    unlucky on the fail good spotting though
    I believe that when the body is strong, the mind thinks strong thoughts. Time spent away from the Iron makes my mind degenerate. I wallow in a thick depression. My body shuts down my mind.

    Slow your descent just a bit. You put yourself forward on that one. You've still got 315 in you.

    Slow it down a little and I think you could benefit from it. Great spotting from your buddy

    Great weight on the overheads. Those things are not easy, lol.

    Is there any reason why you are not squatting inside the rack? I'd hate to see you fall backwards with that weight and kill your buddy.

    Alright, I'll slow it down next time! No particular reason why I squat outside the rack.. I'm just used to it I guess! Plus the things were already on the outside. My spotter knows my lifting well and always knows when I need to spot, so I'm quite fortunate for that!

    Here's some more overhead squatting with 145lbs (about my body weight)!

    Agreed, but bouncing is a proper technique and can be learnt and taught properly, the OP was doing them fine.

    OP, you have NO shrug at all and you wung the power snatch out by good fit. YOu have traps, USE THEM and keep the bar close to you.
    Being a strong teenager means nothing.

    My wrists hurt, but some people don't have wrists to be sore. My knees have tendinitis, but some people don't have legs to get tendinitis in. I seem to be going backwards with training, yet some people can't even walk let alone lift 400 pounds on a daily basis.

    Dust out the vagina, and keep on lifting.

    Snatching is still pretty difficult for me, but I'll try to do those both. I thought I had made a point in my head to always shrug but maybe it just didn't come out on that lift. Thanks!

    Thanks for the other comments folks; glad you enjoyed! Expect more videos, I do like recording.
