First time doing heavy front squats in a while, probably had another rep or two in the tank. This is just about double bodyweight for me.
Damn Tom, very impressive. Looks like you definitely had more.
That's seriously rediculous Tom - I've recently started doing fronts again to help with the DL. I'm betting your at a 500 front squat at least...
lol you made that look easy! Your strong as hell man, good work.

How do you hold the bar? I just started front squats and hold the bar across the shoulder/bicep region, crossing my arms in front. The next day my arms feel sore as hell, almost as if they are bruised although there is never any bruising visually
That is ridiculous! Impressive.

Mother ****er, I just manged to double that. GAH.
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.
Thanks guys, I will probably try for 500 lbs soon.
It is a "clean grip" where the bar is seated on my hands, deltoids, and collar bone. This grip allows you to lock in tightly. You will still tear up your collar bone a little bit when going heavy but it is not too bad, wearing an extra t-shirt would probably resolve that if it were an issue.
Here are a couple of videos where you can see how I set up:

Impressive as always Tom.
How much do you back squat nowadays?
Your strength is amazing Tom. If I had never read your posts on these boards, if someone were to tell me you were all natural I would never believe it. Massive and lean. Inspirational stuff bro.

I am not really sure on the bak squats, they are not very important for strongman but I would think that my RAW squat should be somewhere in the high 500's or maybe 600. Last time (pretty much the only time) that I went heavy i did 500 for a few with just a belt and it wasn't bad. When I do squat I always go high bar and full depth.
Very impressive Tom!
She lied.... SIZE MATTERS!
Disgusting! Awesome lifting Tom.
