    Might not be proper form for a bodybuilder, but he's a sprinter. And since when do sprinters run with their quads level to the ground? hahah - They train a lot differently than bodybuilders.

    In any case, It's pretty damn impressive being clean and all.

    Not to flame but at the depth he is squatting to I would classify that lift as "nothing to write home about". I'm not implying that he can't squat that weight ass to calves or at least to parallel, but that squat was too shallow to be called a squat IMO.

    Most sprinter squat ass to calves. Hamstring and glute development are a huge part of building power out of the blocks, ie a good start.

    Even if your a sprinter you need to use proper form...

    Kinda reminds me of the guy´s that use way to much weight in the legpress and only bend the knees alittle.

    AVI files like this can hide spyware programs in it. Does anyone check the code of these files before they are posted?

    Agreed. What's the point in piling on all of the weight if you only do half a squat? I'd be impressed to see him do less weight ass to floor for reps.

    If he takes that weight all the way down he will not get back up. Tell him to cut the weight in half and do it right.

    Anyway 450 lbs in free squat, when you can only make half squat, dont he think in consecuences of a muscular fail so that he couldnt hold it? does he know what means 450 lbs bar pulling down you spine? when i saw the avi i didnt think at all in what he was doing, i was thinking in what could have happened if his knees failed.

    I'd rather see someone with 225lbs on his back and squat below parallel than using weight too heavy for them and not squating corectly.

    That's a good way to end up with injuries.

    Agree, i love free squats, nice quad sensations when a bit overtrained, but for my 90-100% weights... machine, parallel or 2 very strong friends around. Some ppl in my gym says im crazy cuz i receive hits in my head, but i prefer take care of some scratches in my face than worrying about were could i go with my wheelschair.

    It's funny...any other forum besides AR and people would be like "wow, that looks heavy! great work!"(well I mean besides any lifting site).

    But here we rape him.

    Since when do sprinters run around with 450 lbs on their shoulders? All the sprinters I knew in college did ass deep squats to hit the glutes hard.

    True. I'll be warming up with little weight and people will walk over and say WOW. They think 225 is heavy.

    WTF???

    As a powerlifter hell no that's not a squat. Not even in the IPA.

    However don't forget half squats have there place in training as well depending on your specific goals. It may or maynot be well used for sprinting but, partials have always played a part in strength training.
    Just because they're not featured in the latest "GET HUGE" muscle magizine workout doesn't mean that partials don't have their place.

    Keep an open mind fellas that's what smart training is all about.

    I think you were missing the point xxx was making................partial squats are used like partial lifts are used in bench lifts. Hell I got one for you that doesn't even have a lift portion. Ever hear of walk-outs? It's a Russian technique for getting the legs used to heavier weights. In between sets while doing squats you set the bar load up a crap load of weight, pick it up, step back, ready yourself like you are about to really lift it.................then set it back in the rack, strip the weight back to your next normal weight for the set and do your squats. Not jumping on you bro just thought you missed his point is all.

    Like the bros said in the other posts I'd rather have seen him sacrifice the weight for better form. But it still good to see a bro using them in his training................I'm always amazed that the bench in every gym is worn................yet the squat rack looks just like new.

    Rabidlassie,


    Well then it might be people at your gym know very little about strength training.

    Also at 5'11" 245lbs @ 12%bf I don't think too many people will call me a pussy no matter how I train.

    Honestly that is why I do 20 rep squats - that way I make sure that my form is good and even though I use less weight than I could, i dont risk injury - of course it takes a truck to drag me in for leg day because 1 set of 20-25 is about all I feel like doing that day - hopefully I will get to where I am doing 450 for 20 next year - only 85 lbs to go

    and whats with all the plates? you only need 4 a side and some 25s. or are those not olympian plates?

    i agree with xxxl83 partials are not dead they still have there place in any gym. I am suprised at how many flames are in this thread. If he wasnt planning on doing partial lifts in that video and just overloaded the bar maybe you should give him advice instead of flames? someone even mentioned the fact that some other boards would say nice weight i think not i think they would do exactly what most are doing.
