    I was in one of our squat racks doing some exercises and this Asian guy about my age who was probably around 5'6", probably 130lbs was next to me in the other one. To make a long story short he went through his squat routine and got up to 335. He did 335 x 4 before he quit and then started doing some GMs.

    If I was to look at the guy I wouldn't even guess he could squat that much weight. He didn't look too muscular and his legs weren't all that big. He did have knee wraps and those weightlifting shoes on, though. I think he popped some Animal Paks before he started working out. :mamoru:

    Cliffs: Small Asian guys are strong. :o

    asian dude is the only other one ive seen at the gym squatting more than two 45s. His gf went up to ~100, she was hawt. All the other guys, white, black, whatever seem to just do squats for cardio or something :mamoru:

    Go do 500 squats without any weights, just your body.

    See what happens.

    I really don't think asians are naturally strong. I don't think many small people in general are naturally real strong. They surely worked on it for years and years

    When I started out I couldn't lift shit, but after two years the gains are steady and strong.

    People go :eek: when they see me shoulder press 70-75 lb dumbbells. Still working hard at benching 100 lb dumbbells though

    I'm still a newbie at lifting, but my goal is to be deceivingly strong...it keeps me going since i've been pretty weak before I started lifting
