PLEASE PARTICIPATE, POST YOUR SHR : Here

I got:

SHR = (sitting height / standing height) * 100 = (37 / 73) * 100 = 50.7

:D

SHR: 50.7 (36/71)*100
Squatting deep: Easy, some minor lower back rounding when VERY deep.

where did you get the "anything under 50 = very long legs"? can't find it. Or is that data from some other reference?


I made it up , observing/analyzing the global data chart in that pdf , the 18yo and 20+yo collumns.
It seems average is between 51 and 54.
Also it says in the same paragraph "Mean
SHR for populations of adults varies from minimum values, i.e., relatively longest legs, for Australian
Aborigines (SHR = 47.3 for men and 48.1 for women) to the maximum SHR values, i.e., relatively
shortest legs, for Guatemala Maya men and Peruvian women ( SHR = 54.6 and 55.8 )."

So there you go , values vary from 47 to 55 , average ~52,5 , so 50 is between average and longest legs existing.


Also , my analytical data :
Sitting height = 36,4''
Standing height = 72''
Squatting deep: its all ok until ~210lbs ( ~75% 1RM ) , above that i have serious trouble getting out of the hole, im allready uncomfortable at parallel...

from raptor:

For me is 90/182 x 100 = 49.45

Squatting deep is irrelevant because there are too many other factors at stake for that.

No trouble at all. I can fire my glutes very well. Arch or flat isn't difficult.

k cool..

our hypothesis is that a lower SHR (<51) increases the chances that deep squatting will be difficult & half squatting more effective...

another hypothesis was created: most people with SHR of 50-51 are obsessed with vert because, they are naturally able to jump at an "ok" level, but not near someone who would have an SHR of < 50

another hypothesis was then created: most people obsessed with running vert have an SHR of < 51, that you will not find many over 53 in the "vert addict game", because these people would be more obsessed with lifting in general.

or I could be completely talking out of my ass :)

but that data is pretty cool so far.
