post #40726 of 46404
^ one of my friends was visiting Iceland a couple years ago and was looking for a gym to get a workout in. Stumbled into Jakabol thinking the place looked pretty legit. I think the giants were shocked a 5'2" asian girl wanted to squat with them so they just let her. She had no idea it was Magnus Ver Magnusson's gym (he wasn't there at the time tho).

That place looks amazing, Bjornsson is one of my favourite strongmen along with  Vytautus Lallas and Misha.

I don't get it

I'm witnessing some guy who looks lighter than me, smaller body frame squat 225 for set when I can barely get back to 175. In contrast I can row more than he can (pendlay row)

Sigh..

Because peoples bodies respond to the way they train?

Probably true

I pretty sure I don't know how to squat...

Um... because size and body frame isn't the only factor determining your strength? Just look at the squats in the 66 kg weight class in IPF.

 

I'm just a pound or so heavier right now than at the peak of my bulk last year but my squat 1RM is more than 100 pounds higher.

Yea I hit 210 lbs ~4 years ago but all my big lifts were like 50-100 lbs lighter

PRing squats after not training them heavy since like december, feels good man. 150kgx3 atg, clearly all the curls and lateral raises i've been doing have had a direct impact on my squat.
