    Work on it. Although I've never seen anyone so inflexible they couldn't hit decent depth after a couple sessions.

    I fucked up my ankle (tri-plane fracture) and it never healed right so it doesn't bend nearly as much as my other ankle.

    I'm sure I can do at least 405 without gear. I haven't gone for a max without gear since I hit 325 back in September

    You should be able to hit at least 300 in a full squat, I would think. Unless you have really weak quads?

    Then we get a lot of unusually flexible people come through our club, because pretty much everyone picks up on it pretty well within a week or two with a little coaching.

    I think it just looks that way because he's gripping well inside the rings. Also at 77kg, he's a pretty small guy.

    no....

    does an olympic squat require breaking at knee first? i'm sure most olympic squaters don't let their knees past thier toes, that would be bad for your knees?

    i break at the ass first and sit back. atg for me means as low as i can possibly go. my knees don't go past my feet.

    Yes in an olympic squat you will break at knees in order to keep torso upright.

    Look at this 60 year old dude squatting more than you:p

    Yes, your knees will pass your toes in a full squat. It's not bad for the knees.

    ATG squats? :rofl:

    saying atg squats is redundant.

    like saying sahara desert. sahara means desert. squat means ass to grass or you're not doing it right.
