    I don't really think butt-winking is super dangerous unless it's absurd, but I would try to avoid it as it just tends to be a difficult position to recover from.

    Sometimes you have to have a...

    Absolutely. I wasn't doubting that. I was just commenting that it wouldn't explain a general downwards trend in lifting, although it might explain a huge upward trend.

    Same here. I always perform terrible. I'm just much more comfortable lifting in my normal environment. It's just something I need to work on.

    Fine, but that doesn't really answer the question I was addressing, which is whether Mike T. has been doing worse or better over the years, and why. People are simultaneously implying that...

    That's ridiculous about the RPS meet. Most powerlifters travel for meets, so that's a terrible policy to have if you're going to change meet dates--very unprofessional.

    Also, regardless of UPA drug-tested division not quite being the same as IPF, this was a pretty clean total.

    LOL, dtaps.

    Also, you have to top out somewhere. Eventually the returns from lifting get smaller and smaller, esp. if he isn't breaking any rules.

    Regarding Mike T., aren't you guys forgetting a pretty huge variable--that the IPF cut the weight class he competes in from 275 to 264 lbs? That's a pretty big difference. He's arguably just as...

    As others have said, you can have ridiculously tight wraps and still hit depth.

    That said, anything that inhibits your descent makes it "harder" to hit depth in a sense. Generally wraps make the...

    Of course these things make a difference, but I've never found that it was particularly helpful to focus on something I have no control over. I can't control my leverages, so aside from having just...

    Right, but in his little scenario he seemed to be implying that every variable was the same except that one individual had more fat than the other--at least that was the point he chose to highlight....

    For some reason I find the thumbnail to this video absolutely hilarious. My apologies to those who dig this kind of gym fashion.

    I doubt that the heavier guy would lift more in your little scenario. Yes, if he was heavy enough that he shortened his ROM, it'd make a difference, but 170 to 183 lbs isn't going to make too much of...

    Awesome performance! 800 kg is a nice, round number. Speaking of nice, round numbers, a 300 kg squat is just around the corner!
  • 882 Raw, No Wraps Squat - Blaine Sumner (2149 lb belt-only total)

    Blaine actually beat out Ray Williams on squats. These men are closing in on 1000kg raw no wraps!

    Blaine's squatting style makes it difficult for him to hit depth, but when he finally breaks...

    15 years old, and squatting 727. I'd say he's got a while to catch up to Ray Williams.

    661x4 @165 raw with wraps squat

    Tom Kallas recently claimed the all-time WR squat @ 165 raw with wraps with an amazing 677 lb squat. It looks like his record may not stand for long, however, as it appears Arkady Shaloha is now...

    Pozdeev had knee surgery a while back, and is only back to squatting ~200 kilos these days, according to Nick Zhukov. He'll probably be doing deadlift only.
