Default Another 400lb front squat

Inspired by BodybyGamma's recent video, I thought it was about time I cracked 400lbs on the front squat. Also, having had a ghastly week health-wise, and therefore no gym, I felt back with a vengeance and ready to go.

That's not a squat suit, as a young man in the gym seemed to believe, just a leotard. I have knee sleeves on, long socks and very ancient underpants (not shown in vid).

Depth looks OK on freeze frame. I think with a bit more confidence I could have gone considerably lower.

Bodyweight 220lbs, weight 182.5 kg (402.5lbs)



Depth check:

Yo, now I see what I've done. Sorry, I mixed up your good self and 'Body By Gamma', who just did his own front squat PR. Must be because you both have a G in your names.

I will edit my first post.
