Would this pass or is it too high? I think the bar only touched one knee?
Thanks and kisses.

Woooo thanks Wayne!
For the future what criteria do I need for a good lift? I'm unsure on depth of the bar, hips etc?

Same depth as you'd expect of any squat.

My elbows touch my legs when I reach depth, but bar position at depth will depend on individual dimensions I reckon.

Thanks chaps. I'll probably work on getting the hips lower and improve my technique. Would love to see a 140 in a couple of months time.

Its hard to judge depth with the zercher cam but the ROM looks decent

Isn't the standard depth 18 inches?

I find it too high and personally wouldn't credit the rep. The thought that you have to ask if it's too high signifies that it could be.
Forgive my lack of consensus.

You certainly have the strength, it's a lot of weight to move around.

all i can see is you descend into a void of unfathomable black nothingness and then stand up again Grin
it is like the works of jean paul sartre explained through the medium of zercher lifting.

I'm the arbiter of all things zercher around here. Any dispute with this can be taken up via the PM system and then at St Pancreas.

I think that this is a very valid and fair point.
I wasn't supposed to do zerchers tonight but couldn't live with thie potentially high 130.

So I did a 132.5kg to depth.
