    I hit 565 off the pins - first time doing these in at least 3 years. I left the camera at the gym, so I'll upload the vid tomorrow. Great work everyone!

    What's the weight correlation between these and regular squats? Just watching you guys and I doubt I'd be able to do 315 sheesh...

    Goal(Current):
    400(335) Bench Press
    600(520x3 2xBW) Dead Lift
    500(495x1) ATG Squat
    Total: 1500(1350)
    365 Front Squat
    consistency and intensity.

    I don't think there is one, there are 1000 factors. Someone might be better in the gear than raw, someone may have exceptionally strong arms, etc

    Ben went 125 pounds more than I did and yet he's squatted in the 900's, I've yet to break 600 pounds

    Travis went 585 and doesn't do full meets

    They are good to work on the muscles used in the squat and deadlift though, thats for sure

    I agree with lones!!! I also agree with him about This particular exercise being great for working muscles involved with the squat and deadlift. I hoping it will translate over to my deadlift.

    I thought I was going to be able to go in and do 400, but 315 was my effort - I'm not 100% on my raw sqaut, but its around the 360 mark.

    Wow, huge lifts in here!

    Tried zerchers for the first time, got 3x5@225 after ME squats last week. I really like the movement, other than the sore forearms haha. I'm going to use it for my ME movement next week, hoping to get 315. Will post video if I can.
