    That dudes form is off. It's one thing if you start off nicely, then during the lift your back begins to round a bit. That guys start position is pretty off.

    Wait till you find some of the accident videos, just do a google search, you'll find them.

    I shrieked when I saw a guy drop 900 lbs on the bench.

    Just imagine almost half a ton falling on your chest....

    i agree. but if that 'form' works for him, then so be it. not sure it'd be accepted in a powerlifting contest though? (i never been to one so idk)

    but when i squat heavy, i tend to lean forward as well

    all they care about it is you get down to parallel and dont move your feet. they could care less how rounded your back is or how far forward you lean. and i honestly dont see how his form was sooo bad.

    lol these guys confuse me, it looks like getting the bar down on bench is harder for them then actually pushing it up, same goes for the world record 875 bench ive seen, just threw it up there

    Trust me, they know what they're doing. When you start moving the weight around that they are and using the type of equipment that they do, you'll learn that hitting parallel on the squat in training is not always the goal.

    As to having a hard time bringing the bench down, that's true. That's what a bench shirt does. Use a search and figure out what a bench shirt is before you start critiquing form of people that have a ton more strength and experience than you do.

    or watch his depth at a meet. he breaks parallel in meets, just not always in training.

    i will punch him out.

    i guess im just saying, if they are posting on their site all their big numbers, if they include the fact that they are using equipment, they should also include the fact that they arent going to parallel. it just comes off as showing off in the weight room like high schoolers to me.

    Before you start ripping on a guys training, thinking, for some reason, that he is claiming his 900+ triple as a legit squat, when it is in fact training, and when he was the guy who squatted 720x5 below parallel, raw, I suggest you look into things a little bit more. A lot more. Way, way more.
