    What's your regular squat like? (wider stance to parallel)

    365 for 2 or 3 reps... The olympic lifting friend of mine (he was an olympic wrestling coach for 13 years) had me do them every so often.

    However, on almost all my squats I go a few inches below parallel, not dropping that low, but pretty close. I actually find going below parallel easier on my knees overall. Sometimes when I lift heavier weight than I should I become hesitant and only drop to parallel or just above and it never feels good on the joints. The truth is though I am much stronger and faster out of the hole when I squat lower.

    I haven't got the stabilizers or the strenght perhaps to squat my max of 455 olympic style, ass to the grass.

    the dash, home, page down, left ctrl and delete keys dont worth either.
    apparently, you really need those keys in day to day keyboard life. :mad:

    were bars really that weak back then or is that some sort of pre-bent bar?
