    His form is awful. Not even close to parallel, let alone below it. I'm sure that people will swoop in here though talking about how I can't lift as much, how he'd kick my ass, etc.

    Looks like 2 reps at 365...And they are barely 90deg. I can do 6x those properly. I have a buddy who weigh in at 160 lbs who can do 420Lbs for 4 reps. It's good for a 20 y/0 kid tho. But nothing unheard of at all.

    More BJJ, less weights.

    looks at least 160kg to me

    i assume each weight is 20 kgs, so 8 x 20 and the bar would mean +170kg

    or of course im mistaken and the weights are in pounds

    I've always thought of the pad as more uncomfortable especially when squatting heavy weight. It makes the position of the bar (at least on my shoulders) feel unnatural and hard to get proper placement.

    Some people do prefer to use it and squat much heavier than me but it's a personal preference issue.

    In all honesty, that's not that impressive (I'm roughly his size and squat 405 as well) and his form is aweful. And to the guy who commented on not using a pad, that's how you're SUPPOSED to squat. Otherwise you get bar roll, look at any heavy squatter.

    Bro, you know he only half repped so quickly because he had strep throat of the knees. Plus hes only 19, which excuses everything.

    looks like 3 45lbs and 1 25lbs plates each side
    those plates look bigger but they're lighter than their steel counterparts

    but to answer the question Jones was squatting more than that
