Eric Lilliebridge 465kgs/1,026lbs Raw Squat w/ wraps 24 y/o @ 300lbsSamuel Stebbins
This was my last heavy Squat training session of my meet prep for GPA Worlds. I’m currently 3 weeks out and will be de loading all the way up to the meet now. For this training session, I basically just went by how I felt. The goal was to go up to at least my planned opener for the meet (420kgs/926lbs) and if I felt good, I’d go heavier. If not then I would just cut it there. Since that felt good, I decided to take a couple more heavier singles after. My dad picked the weight for my last set which was 465kgs/1,026lbs. That ended up feeling much better than I was expecting, it also moved faster than I expected too. I’d say the depth was right around parallel for that set. I got a side view of it just to make sure. I talked with Ed Coan right after this training session and showed him my depth. A couple weeks ago he had told my dad and myself that he might be judging at GPA Worlds. Since I knew he might be judging there, I asked him to give me a 100% honest opinion on how it looked. He had said it looked perfectly parallel and that I would need to take it in at least a 1/2 inch deeper to get white lights on depth at GPA. I’m taking his word for it and I’ll definitely get it in a tad bit deeper at the meet. I won’t be posting anymore videos until after the meet since all my heavy training is done now.
