    Actually, the 315 looked just slightly above parallel, but that's splitting hairs. Still nice weight, man.

    I think you may have just reached parallel, but either way... wow. A 315 lb front squat is ridiculous. There's no way in hell I could hold that kind of weight up on my delts, let alone squat it. I'm years away from doing anyting like that. You're truly a beast man.

    Very impressive! I'm with Tofer... front squats hurt my delts too much.

    The angle kind of sucks to judge depth but I think you're pretty damn close to parallel.

    I've never seen partial squats done like that before... I've always done them starting with the bar on the rack and squatting down about 1/4 of the way then back up without touching the guards.

    Hey don't get me wrong! I wasn't trying to belittle his achievement!! Just pointing it out and I guess wondering why one would do them like that instead of how I mentionned. I guess you could practice with more weight because you don't have to decelerate the weight before you push up.

    What was the actual weight? 545, 575 and 600 are all being thrown around in here?

    I know how hard front squats are and thats why hardly anybody in gyms attempts them never mind with 3 big wheels per side.

    I don't think I could hold 600 in the front squat position.

    Awesome work. You should try using a clean grip on your warm-ups before you switch to what we O-lifters call "bodybuilding style", you'll see it's actually a lot more comfortable once you can do it and you can actually use more weight with practice. Keep up the good work

    Take your first warm-up weight and just hold it in the clean position and let it sit there for a bit, getting a good stretch. That helps the wrists get the feel for the stretch, it'll be painful at first but you'll quickly get some flexibility there.

    As for overheads: Take an empty bar or broomstick over your head, hold it in a snatch grip position, then slowly push back. That'll give you a good stretch right there. If you have any experience with behind the neck push jerks, that's where the bar should be too. It should be a little bit back and not right above you. Overhead squats are awesome.
