Default Impressive front squat

I just spotted this video tooling around on youtube.

Mark Clegg is a former olympic lifter who has moved into strongman. I think he competes in the under-105kg (230lb). A 250kg (551lb) front squat at that bodyweight is phenomenal.

The number one exercise on my list for improving the press is weighted dips. I had been
training for two years before I came across dip bars in a weight room and I began dipping right

ever. He never really received much attention because Hoffman linked him with Weider, and since
Hoffman controlled both Olympic lifting and bodybuilding, he was basically blackballed in Strength
and Health. But Iron Man was much more open and ran articles on him.

His lifts were beyond belief. In the early fifties, long before any type of strength-enhancing
drug came along, he did a dip with 434 lbs added to his bodyweight of 198, for a total of 632 pounds,
and did seven reps with 400 pounds around his waist. The overhead press was his favorite lift and
that’s why he dipped so heavy – to improve the press. And it did just that. He overhead pressed 355
at 198 and could bench press 575 pounds. Only Doug Hepburn, a heavyweight, could handle over
500 in 1953.
From an article I posted on another site: http://startingstrength.com/articles...ress_starr.pdf
Keep in mind that we're talking about a strict press. <--- That to me is amazing, along with his dips of course.
