    Seeing him crumble to the ground like that kind of reminds me of that one episode of Scarred when the dude tried to squat 650+ lbs and his leg just gave out. Good thing this guy didn't have the weight on his shoulder.

    I don't think she did anything wrong. As the title says, squat deeper or get what is coming to you.

    C'mon, he only had 95lbs on his back. Would've been better if he had 225 and wasn't in a squat rack. lol

    Wow, I get angry just watching that video... F***ing around in the gym is bad enough, but kicking someone with weight on the back (let alone in the jewels) is inexcusable. Three "I DUMP THEE"s and a swift kick in the arse for her.
    A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook

    No kidding. I'd love to know why anyone thought this was a good idea. I'm all for watching other people in pain for my entertainment but this is just ****ed up.

    Don't get me wrong, that guy is a beast for even putting that much weight on his back but was that parallel? Didn't look anything close to me...
