Default CT Fletcher vs Powerlifter

Kind of a funny Facebook story. Sharing because...

Real powerlifter sees CT Fletcher and crew in a video doing 585 1/2 or 1/4 box squats. Kali Muscle may have been involved too. He has no idea who CT is, tries to help the folks and mentions that this exercise variation is useless.

CT's crew chime in all tough...ask this powerlifter to post a video of 585 box squats if he's so "tough". They bring on the whole who da eff are you attitude.

Powerlifter posts video of 600x5 raw box squats, no belt. Room goes silent. Haters disappear.

Here is one video of the "hard" training being sent to the younger guys from CT Fletcher and Kali Muscle:

Devil's advocate chiming in..

If you read the title, and the description, they're not saying he's squatting.. training legs (quads, hams, calves)

Arash (vid editor, most likely uploader) links to partial squats video.

IMO, he's doing heavy top-half squats for the quads.

As Kali says, he's a body builder, not a powerlifter.. in the video all you see is isolation.
His body speaks for itself, he's huge, he's cut, he's lean..
