Laynes Squat depth at this last meet.
 
Thoughts?

It's late and I've had a long night, but that's a dilletante upset that he's not given what he thinks is due.

Is he strong, yes. Can he stand up with multiple ugly squats, yes. Can he bench adequately, yes. Can he deadlift, maybe. Pulled 315 with a shoulder problem.

Just saying, a lot of guys are stronger than him at that level. What is his point?

Nice lifts buddy. Now keep doing it better so the judges give you credit. And you know, deadlift. That's pretty key in our sport.

But you keep flexing those biceps! I'm sure that will get you where you want to go.

Because he folds so far forward, when I watch his second squat it looks high every time. If I were a judge I would have red lighted him. That's my honest call, after watching it real time 5+ times.

Next I took a still and did my best to look at his hip crease and the top of his knee, and it still looks high. Perhaps my hip crease line is a tad high. Even so, still borderline. And with the folding, and the way it looked real time - like we was folding instead of sinking - I can see why the judges would red light him.

It's borderline at best for me.

That's a fucking brilliant word!

Aye, none of those would have got passed in the GBPF (IPF) over here.

He needs to learn how to use his quads.

Maybe if he didn't fold like a cheap hooker punched in the stomach it would be easier to make depth and to judge it. Every YouTube video he posts with squats, people query his (poor) technique and every video he rambles on about haters. About time he makes a change I think.

Expensive hookers are more sturdy, Al?

I've heard the saying before. I guess cheap ones don't provide such a good service and are more likely to get punched...

hard to tell from some of the angles (people blocking), but they are borderline. He would prob get a white from the head Judge in front, and reds from the side. Just my opinion, he is pretty strong guy though.

Looks like my squat. Except I hit depth, obviously.
