Re: Dude Squatting 765 @ Globo Gym

Jeremy, I can squat to legal depth in the high 300's and I'm 50 years old with multiple knee surgeries. My friend Mark Rippetoe is 54, is missing one of his ACL's and about a week ago he squatted 375x5

That's awesome for you... and that's exactly my point... I consider you STRONG... just as I would consider anybody healthy or otherwise strong if they can squat 400. Are you telling me you think you're not strong?

Re: Dude Squatting 765 @ Globo Gym

A 400lb squat really isn't that strong (in lifting terms), unless you weigh 130lbs. Think about this: strong olympic lifters that weigh 170lbs are squatting upwards of 600lbs, and the strong powerlifters in the 165lb class are all doing upwards of 600lbs themselves, some well over 7 and 800lbs+.

A 400lb squat is a start really, but even for the average person it is pretty easy to obtain if you work at it hard enough.

I guess I need to set my goals higher lol But like I said, I wasn't referring to elite weightlifting/powerlifting terms... 400lbs is still pretty hard to move whether you weigh 130 (3x bw) or 200 (2x bw). 2x bodyweight isn't elite by any standards, but I'd personally consider that strong.

(btw... I weigh about 150 so maybe that's why I think it's such a high number hahah)

nah, I just popped into it and saw the comments, the same goes for you, if you don't like what I have to say, ignore it as well.

Yes he's not to depth, but he obviously has some strength. I'd like to see him do a proper squat to see his numbers.

I took a guy who was doing 1/4 squats at 405 with wraps on and taught him a proper squat, his first time out he could barely get up with 225.

Re: Dude Squatting 765 @ Globo Gym

I'm curious what constitutes strong now, how about this one?

It's a gym lift, a different kind of gym but a gym lift none the less.

Who said he was strong? I'm surprised at the elitism coming from this thread, and all the supposition. Everyone also needs to remember that the lifter didn't post this vid, some random onlooker did. For all we know, he had a bind in a wrap, and reset.

And since when does not being the strongest lb for lb make a person weak?

who said this?

You're right, he didn't post it. But he 1/4 squatted in powerlifting gear. No one made him do it.

Re: Dude Squatting 765 @ Globo Gym

The implications all over this thread are that the guy is weak, and the numbers have been compared to 165lbers.
