    I think most people will have their ass touching the floor with 180kg on their back. Whether they want to or not.

    You can't get down to depth with less than 180kg on the bar? :eek:
    Nope, its all relative really though,( and LV is super swole lol) Lee my trainign partner cannot get to depth will less than 260.
    You kinda build your body to resist the weights.
    I am doing only light squats at the moment as its offseason for me, be doing about 160 for speed reps next week and I won't be able to get below parralel with that, which Sandhu can testify for if he comes to train.

    PMSL, and he would still say it was light as he rocketed it up from about 7 foot above depth

    I know what you mean, it's just an issue with weights that are a long way below your max. Personally if I've got less than about 60kg on the bar it's uncomfortable to balance trying to get below parallel.
