Ive been watching a group oF guys that come in to squat Sat mornings, I remember them from last year too. Not one of them breaks parallel when squatting-be lucky to call some lifts even parallel. They move a lot of weight but none legit...in my eyes, they would never make it in NASA...at least not with the numbers they think they lift. One guy not only had a squat suit, but as he moved up in weight he then put an additional denim looking material suit on top of squat suit..... it takes everything in me to keep my mouth shut, and I do. I dont try to be critical of others effort, heck I cant imagine even having that much weight n my back; but at the same time its garbage lifts like that that ruin the reputation of the sport. Evidently in whatever org they lift for all those lifts are considered legit...as they all root for, clap, high five etc. I can only stand by and quietly shake my head and be happy that NASA expects true lifts. I'm a believer in that if you do something, it should be done right, otherwise its equivalent of cheating...just my opinion.
