They were probably below parallel.
That film angle always makes squats look a foot higher than they actually are.
I think it was a guy on reddit that took a bunch of photos of the same depth squat (used a box) from different angles and they ranged from looking like 2-3” below parallel to 5-6” above.
ATG or nothing tyvm.

I love front squats. But my lower shoulder blade pain makes it excruciating. I want a gym with a safety squat bar

Jen Smith just benched 130kg at 60kg bodyweight, huuuuuge total incoming at BoB.
Her most recent vids are a 205kg x 2 squat, 130kg bench and 202.5kg deadlift.
Meanwhile the 90kg women’s was won with ~135/85/180 at APL nationals on the w/e.
I really dislike PL sometimes haha.
BoB should be a good competition.

I don't want to take anything away from these huge lifts as they are mighty impressive, especially at 19 but damn these T-rex armed big bellied dudes who can get away with moving the bar less than 6 inches. Unfortunately for me my ROM even with an arch is so much more than this. Long arms be damned!

I’d like to be bench only cos I’m lazy, but I’ve got long arms to do deadlifts ftw
