    Some guys are squatting, going barely below id say, 65 degrees, no where near parallel at least.

    They throw up two 45 lb plates on each side, so i guess it was 225 lbs. The one guy goes to do it, goes about 80 degrees twice and almost falls to the floor.

    The other guy does about 5, 20 degrees above parallel. This guy gets off and says to his friend, and i quote : "Don't worry man, this is some heavy weight"

    Im like :ugh:

    Oh, and did i forget to mention this was on a smith machine :mamoru:

    I would've started repping 315 right next to them while jerking off and laughing like a madman.

    smiths are counterweighted, so it would have been 180lbs

    Obviously not too into it. ;)

    My brother and me used to see 2 guys do the exact same thing at the gym. Only difference was one of them brought their gf along to watch them "destroy the weight". :rofl:

    Raping your grandmother is a better leg workout than smith machine half-squats.

    nothing at all, just free squats are harder becase smith guides you and not as much form is needed

    No stabilizer work. It's a lot harder to control a moving bard.

    I saw a guy squatting for 55+ minutes today. He was some tall string bean. I finished my whole workout and he was still in the power rack. :o
