KLC anything with a smith machine is easier. Also, never squat with a smith machine, it fu**s up your from so bad. There is no replacement to a normal squat.klc123 wrote:Hmm, well my bench press score was with free weights so It doesn't really matter then.
Icy, bold statement.
Look up videos of the world record squat by the way, they very rarely get close to parallel, never mind touching the ground.
I squat parallel and that's what I'm comfortable with, I'm not gonna go injure myself by trying to go ATG.
And even if I was gay enough to video myself lifting weights, I wouldn't send it to anyone, nor would i rub it in your face. Grow up please.
Just out of interest, how much do you squat? because if its less than 195 then that raises some serious questions about the type of character you are...
BTW is a smith machine the thing where it is like two uprights and a pole in between and you put what weight you want on it? Because that's not what i do my squats on, we have a squat machine in my gym that is more like a vertical leg press although the trainer in the gym said it does the exact same load as a normal squad, it just doesn't put a bar across your back and makes it easier to load weights on.
This is true ATG squats are like the only thing that dosnt injure me.And ATG squats won't injure you, actually quite the contrary, they really help to activate the post-terior chain of muscles. (calves, glutes, hamstrings)
I will wait for push ups.also, last year i did 76 push ups, but i'm not sure if it was in a minute, and the last 15 wouldn't have been all the way down so can you put 60 for me until i try it properly?
