A link to Rippetoe's thread on the kid. He spouts him off as an example of success.

And as far as his strength:

His bench is at 240 x 5, Squat 345 x 5 DL is 325 x 5, press is about 145 x 5, PC is about 176 x 3.

242 pounds bodyweight.

Hmm. I might have to redact my statement, those extra side and back shots are not doing him any favors. Although 145 x 5 to 345 x5 is pretty awesome in 6 months, that would take little over a year with 5/3/1.

edit: yikes and i thought my bench was shitty

13lb a month? 3lb a week???? 1/2 a lb a day?!?!?!??? And Rippletits' lean mass estimates are generous

i hear you. i really just don't believe in some magically arbitrary strength cutoff line where bb volume starts "working" and anything before that is spinning your tires. yeah, higher volume/lower intensity will work better for stronger guys - just as higher intensity/lower volume works better for stronger guys.

you have to make volume style stuff work. progression within a set rep range >>>> dickwaving over what rep range is best and when said rep range starts working.

My latest squat, which is the heaviest I've gone on them since laying them off around Christmas.

I had a problem with arching too much and overextending my back on the ascent since I couldn't engage the core properly. Also couldn't go past parallell without butt-winking. Feels a lot more stable now after some months of mobility work, front squats and loads of core work.

 

Anything else that could be improved?

I use a pretty wide stance (heels just outside shoulders).

Gonna record my next squat session and post it up next to my previous squat video(the one I constantly get ridiculed for). We'll see if I've made any kind of form gainz over the past 8 months.icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Also will post updated DL form. Think RHET will be proud.
