Look at the focus on the spotters face. That's hot.

Is that a joke?
Robb Wolf 2008-10-29
Gotta keep your eye on the Italian chicks...
Cooper 2008-10-29
no... i wasn't being a dick. for all the good info i find here i didn't expect to get a response like that either.

now i'm probably wrong but it looks like the knees are not too far forward (it actually *almost* looks like vertical shins), torso leaning pretty far forward, bar below/behind acromion...

Maybe instead of giving a condescending answer someone else could point out why it is so obviously not a low bar squat.

I'm sorry, I wasn't trying to be condescending at all. I am sorry if I offended you. I trully apologize. When I asked if it was a joke, I said so because there has been a lot of low bar - high bar back squat talking recently, so I actually thought you were making a low bar squat joke. I took it out of context and I am sorry.
To really answer your question, that is katie, and that is how she squats, she doesn't get into the same position as one does when doing a high bar back squat, so that is why it looks a little low. And, she isn't wearing shoes ;)
Again, sorry to make you angry. Please forgive. No harm intended.
cooper 2008-10-29
wow, having re-read i am a little bitchy today and should not have gotten that worked up.

thank you for explaining, i was asking because of all the low vs. high stuff in the interwebz lately.
Robb Wolf 2008-10-29
Personally I'd call that the "skinny-pasty-strength-coach" back squat.
Jesse Woody 2008-10-29
I agree with Robb...how have your lifts been going up while playing all that World of Warcraft anyway? ;)

At least living in the Mid-Atlantic I have an excuse for not having a tan this time of year! :p

Greg or Aimee,

Do you sell your werksan equipment in the sets or only individual. Thanks for info.
Ian 2008-10-29
SnBal 70kg...sucked, but that's good because it's an area that I really need to work on. Thanks. I've been avoiding these.

Skipped the metcon to give myself added rest. This first week has been high volume and I'm pretty sore today. I can't wait for Saturday's workout.

Thea - Shoot me an email and we can hook you up with a set - we just don't list them in the store.
Kevin 2008-10-29
Got a newbie question-what in the world is a broad jump? I looked in the excercises page but did not see an explanation?


Greg Everett 2008-10-29
Kevin - Standing long jump.
ken c 2008-10-29
snatch balance 185
front squat 245
snatch pull 225

that snatch balance has me all messed up. need to practice that some more.
Jonathan 2008-10-30
Snatch Balance: Up to 115#, but it was ugly. Backed down and practiced!
FS: 185# x2x4
Snatch Pull: 190# x3x3
Metcon: 3 rds for time: 10 Broad Jumps, 10 60# DB swings, 10 Pushups. 4:13
My first 5 jumps were great..and long. Then I turned into a 4 year old and it was sad. Slowed down and things got better. Swings and Pushups were easy, but those jumps were humbling! Very sore in the glute/hamstring area.
Richard Thomas 2008-10-31
Front squat only (Limited for time)
Front squat: 87.5kg x 3 x8
