    The thing with this forum is that I can never tell sarcasm from truth anymore. That looked fine to me, except the feet comming off the ground.

    I think as long as you are releasing the tension from your glutes, etc.. then its correct...who knows?

    I think the box is too high or the guy is too short. The feet are not supposed to come off the ground.

    damn...I though I squatted high...lol...


    that's the old school Culver City Westside Barbell (gym Louie named his after) method of doing box squats....

    no longer considered proper...

    Maybe if he dropped the box about 6 inches.

    I'm sure he's strong and all and you can tell he's jacked but really...

    I would say it is even more impressive that he is a bodybuilder sitting at 8-10% BF and can still lift that much
