Yeah, big Z is incredible. I love WSM. Those goofy knobs and the bars underneathe actually screwed up quite a few lifters. They apparently set those bars at just below parallel for each guy, and the guys who were used to squatting deeper got into trouble when they clanged off the bars and got bounced around. I beleive that's why Z was lowering them so slowly and virtually turned them into paused squats. I don't know, but I bet he'd have done even more alot more explosively if those bars were not there. Shahlei was the same way, and I think he did 9 or 10 to win this event?
Those guys are amazing.
