    Robert, you are strong as ****!

    I do have one question, every video I have ever seen of you squatting has you cutting the reps high. I know you are going to compete, so why do you do it that way? Do you do other sessions to depth? Is it a training principle for you? I just want to understand your position. I'm not trying to give you a hard time.

    I will take Robert at his word as videos can be very deceiving. In the end, all that matters is what the judges think at a meet.

    strong lifts dude! The 2nd rep looked better than the first. I think you still got a 1000 in you if you hit depth

    huge squats! all that matters is what goes down in the platform. You could easily have the world record single ply squat if you went after it!

    how's that deadlift looking?

    ....

    The man is a ****ing giant how low do you want him to go? If you pause it when he's at his lowest point his thighs are definitely parallel.

    Not to trivialize such an incredible lift....

    I do think you got a little deeper on the second one, but all comments on depth aside, you manhandled that weight. This was a training video, not a meet video and you've more than proven that you will get whites in a meet.

    So what meet are you planning on breaking that 1000lb barrier in? If its near by here, I want to go watch it happen.

    The next stop: PRO total.

    Just curious approx how much did those bands help in pounds at the bottom of those reps? Is there a way to accuratly figure it? Just trying to learn more,not a comment on that ungodly amount of weight you are lifting. WOW!

    I thought you looked considerably bigger in this video compared to past ones. Than I thought it might just be the shorter hair.

    I gotta be honest. I'll probably get flamed for this, but I don't care. First of all, to Kingkong: Incredible lift, you are seriously strong. Nothing can take away how strong you are, and I would never critique any of your lifts.

    That being said, I WILL critique the responses in this thread. If a new poster came in squatting 315 with this same depth, everyone would be all over them about how crappy their depth is. If they came back and said it was the camera angle, everyone would flame them even more. How is it that we can set such a double standard? I don't care if he's squatting 135 or 1350, and I don't care if he weighs 120 or 420. Parallel is parallel. To say that this squat is parallel is ridiculous, and to accept it because "kingkong said so" is just as ridiculous. If any other person did this, they'd be flamed right off the board.

    Once again, no disrespect to Kingkong, this is an incredible feet of strength, but that squat is NOT parallel.

    oh good grief. Its a training video for ****s sake. Why waste internet space arguing over it? This is a guy with a proven track record on the platform. He'll do what needs to be done when he steps up on the platform.

    The difference is EXPERIENCE and posting not ONE but MANY totals in a meet and getting many squats passed. It's a training video, nothing more, nothing less.
