    Equipment. Multi-ply lifters usually squat more then they deadlift.

    He is using powerlifting gear. Helps considerably with the squat. Very little with the deadlift.

    When you posted your external blog's earlier on I had a little look to see what you were like when you started off and it linked to your Youtube, so I had a little look and I didn't think you squat very deep to be honest. These vids were from quite a while ago though.

    Can't deny that you're a beast though, good work.

    Well it depends what you call "very deep." I've never cut squats above parallel apart from when breaking in a suit or warming up. I've had squats passed in the GBPF and BPC.

    Well by an acceptable depth I mean by what I learned in the Starting Strength book. So that the crease up your hip/top thigh area is parallel with the crease in the back of your knee.

    I don't know what the official rules are for an acceptable depth though, so Rippetoe's advice is all I got! As a legionnaire of his I'm sure you understand.

    You've got that depth cue wrong mate. The hip crease has to be below the top of the knee in all powerlifting federations and also I'm pretty sure in Rippetoe's book.

    What was your bodyweight?

    Looked like some good lifts. Using gear doesn't detract from that.

    Nun squats deeper than a lot of the other gear whores I see. What is written in Mark Rippetoe's book Starting Strength isn't geared towards powerlifters and as such isn't really applicable to them. Powerlifters don't generally squat the way he teaches because the squat he teaches isn't a powerlifting style squat so squat like that and you won't be lifting your very heaviest, although for some people that style of squatting may be best for overall leg growth as opposed to a wider stance.

    In theory, all federations have the same rules on squat depth; however judges in different federations all seem to vary in their strictness.

    Yes, I'm not a great fan of the IPA.

    For one thing, their Worlds meet results look like this: http://www.ipapower.com/RESULTS/09Worlds.html - see anything weird? That's right, usually World Championships list the lifter's country alongside his/her name. That's how the IPF, GPC and WPC do it. It strikes me that the IPA Worlds is a bit like the World Series in baseball - a bunch of Americans compete against each other and are arrogant enough to claim that it constitutes a world championship.

    It is best known for being the fed Donnie went to collect his gifts when he bombed in real feds, and EVERYONE uses it as an example of how multiply lifters all squat high, which makes us all look bad. Nobody ever posts WPC or BPC videos when trying to make this point, it's always IPA. Apparently they're cracking down, but who in this country gives a ****? Judging by their worlds results, very few people (if any).

    Mike Sweeney is taking the WPC in the right direction and the Brits were judged correctly, as far as I could tell - and I did spend the whole of Sunday 3 feet away from pretty much every single person that lifted. My depth was marginal on the first one and maybe I was unlucky, but it was not deeper than anything that was getting passed I don't think.
