    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.

    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!

    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

    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"

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
