The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

    Mike, I am quite the depth Nazi, so I would have to say you did not hit depth in any of those squats. Regardless, that is a hell of a lot of weight to have on your back, especially in the fashion you did that, so it is still impressive for sure.

    Thanks joey, yeah; I kind of thought the raw on was borderline, and I did a 705 that I didn't include in the video that looks to be right where I want to be. Usually to fix my depth I just hae to get back to box squatting for a while, so I'll be sure to do that. This session was primarily about getting under some heavy weight, but I do hate to cut 'em high.
