    What Lagrangian said... works fine unless your rack has huge gaps between the holes to put the pins in.

    The guy in the Rack advertisement probably gets teased mercilessly at his real gym. Brings me comfort.

    Also in the ridiculous behavior observations dept, today I saw a huge fat guy put 4 plates (8 total) on the bar to do some 1/4 ROM squats. Just makes me facepalm. Lower the weight and get more range, work back up.

    Squat progression today: 1x360, 5x315, 1x375, 10x275, 1x365, 20x225.... got to taste my breakfast again on rep 17 of the last set. Spinal erectors are feeling beastly.

    Squat widowmakers separate the men from the boys.

    Beautiful form on every lift, must have an amazing coach. They're all NFL candidates or at a minimum D1 colleges.

    HAHAHAHAHA this is the funniest thing I've seen in a while. Their coach deserves to be quartered.

    That is what every high school and junior high weight room looks like across the US.

    I can't tell if the really fat ones have the best form or if I just can't see because they're fat. Beautiful snatch form, front raise and press.

    I thought the same thing. The fat boy, Devin at 1:50 and 4:30 has the best form by a mile out of that group.

    And the other fat kid, Andrew Maxwell is still much better than the rest.

    How do people just drop bars on their chest to push back up when benching? Looks painful.

    Those were snatches? I couldn't tell. I just thought they were doing some shitty clean and presses or something.

    Surprised you guys managed to watch the whole thing. My neck was getting tired from all the head shaking.

    Semi-off-topic, but theom-, are you really looking for black APC NS sz 30? I squat like a little bitch but my ass and thighs were getting too big for mine.

    What's a little pain when you're able to call it a "rep"?
