PR Backsquat - Questionable Depth

Hello all; was hoping for some feedback on this particular PR backsquat. To me, it's as shallow as you can be with the squat still counting, but definitely not *** to grass. I'd like to know the feelings and opinions of the Crossfit community on squat depth such as this video.

Again, this was a recent PR, I know it looks horrific... it was really close to not getting up. This is not how my regular backsquat looks.

Re: PR Backsquat - Questionable Depth

Most feds define a legit squat as thw crease of the hips equal to or below the top of the knee....which makes yours a legit parallel squat.

But what's with the ridiculous weight dump?

Re: PR Backsquat - Questionable Depth

Seeing stars, and thought I couldnt make it back to the rack. Is that frowned upon?

Re: PR Backsquat - Questionable Depth

I've never seen anyone dump at the top of a lift. You should have just been able to stand there and suck in some air then re-rack as normal.

Re: PR Backsquat - Questionable Depth

This guy does it, I ain't about to argue with him. I also thought the lifts depth was fine, nice work!

Re: PR Backsquat - Questionable Depth

I'll argue with him cause he's still an idiot. Can't wait until the needlessly dropped bar bounces im an unexpected direction and rolls up on the back of his ankles. I prefer strength with class. To me stuff like this cries of a desperate need for attention. Just let the lift speak for itself. These are the same reason I hate touchdown dances. You aren't the first person to do it and you won't be the last.....

Re: PR Backsquat - Questionable Depth

My only issue with the drop is, it's inefficient... either some combination of people will have to pick it up and rerack it, or somebody has to deload the bar from the ground, which is pain in the butt compared to racked.

Looked like a good lift though, definitely deep enough.

I've had some pretty intense one rep maxes and the last thing I'm worried about is re-racking the weight, especially since I don't plan on doing anymore squats after that 1RM/max effort squat. It's not a big deal if you have bumper weights and the proper area to drop it. You're not going to get any stronger walking the weight back into the rack. Just my opinion.

Here's me squatting 200kg @66.5 then dumping it...lol

Looks like you got below parallel just slightly. Good lifting. Might not wanna get so geared up for squats though since you're not a powerlifter. Lose the knee wraps maybe get some knee sleeves. Something a little less restrictive in movement.
