    I agree. After a while, it wasn't a big deal but for a long time whenever I was trying a new personal best a lot of times I'd get psyched out and stop a little before 90 degrees. I do think it was partially related to form breaking down because part of it was having the feeling like I would fall back, but there's definitely a mental element, especially when you're at or near max

    I wanted to see what it was like to be skinny, if only for a moment.

    I'm pretty sure if you don't have form issues and you are mobile enough, there is not many reason to not hit depth.

    Have to translate those numbers to make any sense
    105 kg = 232 lbs
    120 kg = 265 lbs
    173 cm = 5'7
    82 kg = 181 lbs

    Nothing to add, just needed a reference

    He claimed 358 was his best comp lift, not 400. Just reading your posts you seem really bitter, slightly retarded and almost illiterate. Are you ok bro?

    You nailed the "an" bro, congrats. I would have lost a bet right there.

    Yes. Hence why you see people on the platform not hit depth regularly.
    Doing it around your 1rm.

    "Can you do x?", a question, is not the same as "I can do x", a statement.

    Is english your first language or are you autistic?
