Is this guy's squat legit?
Ya, that is a good squat, but I thought he was going to fall forward when he hit parallel..
That's LEGIT and impressive ! Wow he actually went all the way down, some people go 90 degrees
that was +500lbs ! the kid looked young too
Your hip was beneath your knee. Good job man, nice max.

Legit in my book. Not pretty but legit!
Lol ya I need a hair cut BAD.
I say fu*k what ever evreyone says **** legit if you were competing they would've counted it.
Another thing I will say is I VERY RARELY see videos on here so I hope seeing me post videos will get more people to post videos. I will say this though I probably wont be posting anymore videos for a while
Plus if I get some help on my form that would be pretty cool too.
STRONG LIKE BULL!!!
Focus on keeping your chest up, and "pulling back" with your shoulders and erectors when you're coming out of the hole. I have to concentrate on this same thing - my squats used to look like that. Box Squats and beginning each concentric by "pulling back" has helped alot.
You've got the strength, you just need to keep that back straight to prevent future injury.
Do you compete in Pl'ing?
Another thing I've started doing to combat "good morning"-ing out of the hole is to pull my hands closer together on the bar. This forces the scapulae back and together and sets up the upper back in a "locked" position, making it harder for the back to arch up. I learned that from Kleen.
I tallied 335/405/455 at my first meet at 230ish. Thereafter, learning some new tricks, I never competed again but I was 205 with a 365/455/505. You can do this!
Do you use a bench shirt/squat suit or train with chains, switching up between power/speed movements?
In my limited experience, I'll help the best I can.
Yeah but that was some ****ty form
