Not impossible, it just puts you in a **** poor position to bear heavy load with this lift in your lower back. Lots of well meaning novices do this and get away with it for a short while, then have to unlearn it in order to catch a weight properly (for oly purposes).

Seeing that you had it wrapped for your squat I'd guess that this isn't a new issue. Spend some time with a good soft tissue guy(ART, Graston technique, etc) and get that worked out before it is a bigger issue.

Nice squat btw, but you already knew that.

Optimal in what way? That is the question.

You are right, hence I said as close as possible.

Watch this 825 lbs raw squat (he used knee wraps). His knees are forward, but he minimizes it.

By the way, Sam is a powerlifter. Strong as heck especially for his body weight. And, no, he did not use the Olympic bounce like Mendes to get half way back up. This lift is all brute strength.

thats a low bar squat tho. completely different

im not sure if you are trying to discredit mendes olympic squat by saying the bounce is cheating. the bounce is in fact NOT cheating.

Bounce or no bounce, it's still an ATG squat (not hating on Sam)

Re: The 405 Squat

I think LBBS might be easier to get completely vertical shins than HBBS. Looking at some Oly HBBS, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1rodJ...eature=related WFS, shins are still pretty vertical.

Receiving in a clean is a whole different story.
