132 squat 350, thats enough...... anymore and he'll be too bulky to sprint imo
33yrs | 24in SVJ | >45% BF | 227LB | 5'9 | 7'5 reach | 400lb max squat paused | 5'8 wingspan | 26in RVJ

Coming back from 2 years of inactivity!

Goal: Maintain 385-405lb squat while cutting down to 165 LB

and there's no video of him squatting. so who knows what he means by squat. also who knows how often he trains it, and at what speed, what form etc.

also what are you talking about with "wtf squat is good for"? he's claiming a 2.6 BW squat.................................................................

352lbs doesn't sound like much but it's 2.6x his body weight, which is equivalent of a 200lb Kingfish squatting 520lbs.

If I was using a case of squat not meaning shit I'd be using someone like Christophe Lemaitre who can barely squat his own body weight and trains by doing power cleans with 100lbs!!!! He really needs to move out of France and relocate to Jamaica or the USA if he ever wants to improve because clearly staying in Europe in his comfort zone is doing nothing for his career.

You don't have to be muscular or bulky to run fast but you have to be able to move a certain amount of weight at a fast rate, lifting heavy weights is not as important as getting fast on the track but lifting 100lbs is RIDICULOUS for a world class sprinter

it could be ridiculous but, what really is ridiculous would be staying in your comfort zone when it comes to actual track work - and who you train with etc. If he's not surrounding himself with monsters, then ya, awful for his development.

that'd be interesting if Christophe moved to Jamaica several years back .. it'd be like The Robertson bros who moved to Kenya at ~16-17, and became some of the best runners in the world.

any people moving to Jamaica like that? That'd be cool to follow.. also, if it's not happening, it should be.

peace!
