thnx flander/lbss.. I'm glad we took the SHR data, it definitely indicates high SHR = easier going ATG.

pc

Im very glad that what we suspected from the chart seems to be verified from real data ( with some expected deviation of course )!

yup, this data gathering turned out pretty good.. true science! lolol


We should do more of this kinda shit. I love this. So interesting and fun to compare with other people.

i agree, if everyone had cams, we could create complete profiles, anthropomorphic measurements, and then link that to a performance profile (strength in lifts, speed, jumps etc).. would be fun.

Cool study here, I love doing this type of shit.

34.3/67.5 = 51.111111

Not bad.

That's very weird, I've also always perceived myself as short limbed and my friends tell me that all the time haha.
I find squatting very hard, my weak ankles contribute to this, but I find the going down to strain me. I tend to have to step backward and it's difficult to keep my heels down.
Lazy kid. Doesn't take training as extreme/serious as most of adarq.org

48.0  

Always knew my legs were long. I squat low bar, athletic stance always past paralell. I have to shoot my knees forward though. If I try to PL squat (static knees) I end up folded like a briefcase and lifting with my back  :o My squat is very much like what Mark Ripptoe prescribes. I lift on a wedge board too (too cheap to buy oly shoes)

Below link to a vid of 150kg x 1. Made 160kg recently but no vid.

I've tried oly squats but I just can't get all my junk (legs) out of the way without putting the knees out in the next postcode. Gets dodgy over 110kg and upsets my patellar tendonitis  >:(

i checked side angle, didn't look bad, your hip mobility really kicks in as you hit depth, even with those long legs.. i personally don't recommend rippetoe style squats but people have made great progress on them, such as steven-miller etc..

my recommendation is always, hit "your own unique depth" allowing some knee shift forward + keep a more upright torso, this could be atg, slightly below parallel, or slightly above parallel.. everyone is different, you'd probably have pretty good form on it with slightly above parallel.

if you ever decide to play with it, remember you can use a few squatting styles.. you could:
1. alternate styles per session
2. work up using a deeper depth, then transition into a half depth
3. hit a block of deep then transition into a block of half, block = 4 weeks perhaps

stuff like that.. bottom line, with an SHR of 48, perhaps squatting above parallel would feel really good...

one VERY nice way to squat half, is to pin squat.. pin squats shit all over box squats.. set the pins to your half depth, unrack, lower, pause, reset a bit if you need too, explode up.. pin squats are very useful.

anyway man, good stuff, your chan is very nice you're putting in work.. that quarter squat crap you did was tuff, lockout hold, then pin squat quarter, haha..

Yeah bro dead right, squatting just above paralell feels crazy natural to me. But I did most of my schooling in the 5 x 5 strength world where anything above paralell is homo. So I forced myself to learn the squat they preach.

But the more time I spend around leapers the more I appreciate different means to an end. I'm gonna start looking at a more natural (for me) squat, whatever that looks like.

Farkin long legs  ::) Thanks for the input dude.

SHR = 47.9

Squatting deep used to be hard but now pretty easy after lots of mobility work, still have a problem with leaning forward too much and good morninging the weight up on heavier sets though
