    I once competed against Odd Haugen in a grip competition. At the time I had no idea who he was. Nice guy, CRAZY strong. Went through the entire competition with his bluetooth device in his ear, even while pulling 450 on the axle.

    It's not anywhere close to squatting 220kg 48times. You're also pulling yourself forward, and it's more of a quarter/half squat.

    Granted, that shit is insane, but it's not as insane as they make it seem.


    But totally a cool vid/series.

    Yeah, I strongly dislike when they oversimplify things like that. It honestly seems to have very little to do with the squatting motion - You use your arms, the angle is very different, legs are closer to a lunge position, each "rep" builds upon the momentum of the one before it etc. etc.. They don't need to do that stuff to convey the absurd effort it takes to move that vehicle.
