    185kg squat after only four months of lifting? This i gotta see....

  7. back from gym. i tested my back nice and let to make sure i could handle the weight and i decided that as long as i keep strict form that i'm good to go.

  8. oh and for squats i don't regularly have a spotter so i use this for my squats to go heavy weight....don't know how much of a difference it makes besides that it helps keep form.

    BIG difference.

  10. i wouldn't really consider those squats.
    it's a hack squat machine.
    the two are completly different.
    when someone says they did squats.....i assume it's with a bar + plates.

    btw. nice progress thus far!

  11. the one next to it is called the hack squat machine though...lol

  12. I could probably squat 1000 lbs with that machine. But nice progress with the lifting, goodluck.

  13. ugh. that saddens me a bit. but i'm not going to get down about it. i've worked up the muscle, now time for the fast twitch lol.
    wish me luck

  14. don't be sad, just ask someone that knows what there doing to spot you real quick while you check your squat max. I'm quite sure it wouldn't be a problem

    then idk what you call that thing. lol.
    the platform is still in front and angled like a hack.

  16. its like a 5 degree angle just sayin. squat machine? lol
    and on the hack squat machine i can put up 540 5x and i can notice different areas being worked.

    big big big difference bro. Don't ever use those things. You don't get near the "full body" workout using those that you would with squats. There is no need for stabilizer muscles to be activated with that "thing"

  21. thanks everyone. will not use the squat machine any more

    Squatting is where it's at!

    Good luck perfecting the technique.. remember to sit back into the squat... don't just let your knees bend, you basically move your center of gravity back and lower your body into it.. keep your abs tight throughout the movement, and take a deep breath before you go down to be increase intrathoracic pressure.. It's fine to breathe out as you enter the concentric phase of the lift, do so slowly. Anyway, that's just a basic outline, and in no way concludes everything there is to know/do about squatting.

    Sorry if you knew all that already, it's just that I know squat is a difficult movement to get right.. and I know that the basic outline I just gave has helped me a lot.

    Damn i remember those...they were nice... in college the coach makes sure that ass touches the ground lol.


    ...I like the fat chick in the back too

  24. that'd be a power squat machine if i remember correctly. they're nice and there's no reason you shouldn't use it, as long as you're using it correctly and getting good stimulation out of it. i'm as much of a stickler for good ol' regular squats as the next guy, but that shouldn't deter you from taking advantage of good equipment.

    fyi, i powersquatted over 1200lbs for reps before. my best regular squat is in the vid in my sig, 585. so, no, not the same by any means.

    ahh got into a heated discussion about prohormones and prolly said some sh1t i shouldnt have, and got infractions about discussing it because im 18

  30. ya i just went over your previous posts and read them. some guys you just don't argue with.

    yep, learned that the hard way. lol

  32. Squats today: 1x5 180, 2x5 270, 1x5 315
    (vid of the highest only )

  33. Sorry drumma, but those are hardly close to parallel..

  34. meh. i'm ok with it.

  35. wow. Drumma seriously they are not squats. Your legs are not going to get any bigger or stronger doing squats like that. You are completely wasting your time, i find it funny that you even posted them in the first place. Welcome to flame city.

    Id be very suprised if you could even full squat 225lbs just once.

  36. um yeah brutha, it's time to do some real squats for a change. kudos to you for posting up a vid though, at least you have the balls to post up while the majority keep talking their ****. but seriously though bro, start over with some real squats (parallel) and work your way back up. yeah, your ego will take a hit for a little while but your strength will go up fast and before you know it, you'll be going ass to grass with that exact same weight and noone can say **** to you.

  37. If that is the gym's personal trainer, I would fire his ass.
    Sorry, DB, but you are wasting your time doing squats like that. Learn proper form, do them right - grow.
    Props for the video, at least.

    So you're ok with being a little *****? Why even waste your time trying to squat like that?

    Stop ego lifting and use a weight you can actually move properly.

    Wow... shut the hell up and die in a fire jerk.


    Drumma, i used to squat like that man, im not going to hate. But i got in college and learned the real way, its alot harder and youre going to hate it but it will make you bigger and stronger once you get the proper form down.
