    Squat a grand at Detroit Barbell. My friend, disblohs, and I witnessed it. He came up incredibly fast, and Im really surprised he's going that heavy 2 weeks before the Arnold. :bowdown:


    The guy was incredibly nice and his handshake was like getting squeezed by the jaws of life. :mamoru:

    man he looked uncomfortable as fuck in that setup. But :rofl: 1000lbs with no knee wraps. For those that were there, how did the depth look? He looked a bit high but this camera angle isnt too good for depth judgement.

    I think the depth was alright, maybe just a tiny bit high. Then again Im not a powerlifter, so I dont really know what the usual standard for parallel is. As you stated though, he did seem uncomfortable with the setup.

    he's in a metal suit, I'm assuming metal briefs as well. He wears his belt like me, it almost covers the whole Metal logo

    Yeah, he didn't hit depth, but the people watching for it said he was close. I heard a couple people comment about how loose his gear looked, but I don't know enough about it to have an opinion.

    Leave it to the internet warriors to judge depth on someone hitting 1000 pounds in the gym. Jesus Fucking Christ!!

    I said it first, ray. I thought it looked high and disblohs (the person who took the video) said Matt's training partners said it was high.

    I was just surprised that he took something highish so close to the Arnold. No one is hating.
