BigKen said:BTW, not trying to insinuate anything, just trying to figure out if you're in with Bolton etc.

Progress is looking good mate.


Yeah, BPC is untested and multi ply - the federation that Bolton and all that lift in.

Do you not feel it sort of "cheapens" your squat though?

BPC rules: the lifter must bend the knees and lower the body until the top surface of the legs at the hip joint are lower than the top of knees.

Theres no such thing as "IPF Depth," just loose judging.


I dont think it cheapens anything, but i think the constant arguing between federations and lifters cheapens the sport in general.

Wiegieboard said:Well done with the weightloss Toby. Are you thinking of dropping a category eventually or are you gonna stay in with the bigboys?
Bloody hell Toby I just realised that was you in Sams vid. You really are looking trim man!


I am gonna lift in the 140's for now, but i dont have any long term plans. I am just gonna see what happens. I feel stronger at 140 than i did at 150 and i feel a lot better in myself too, more energetic and lifting seems to be going well. The weight loss has also helped my deadlift loads as its easier to get in a much better starting position.

It's not bickering or complaining about any feds/lifters but the fact is if your hip doesn't go below your knee it's not a legit squat.

How do you feel squatting with the 160 completely raw now Toby? Is it a really fast rep almost like a warmup now or do you still feel it a little?
The 265 will fall soon I'm sure.
Also, how's that flu that you had?

Flu has gone completely now man.

160 raw is high bar with perfect form to full deapth, holding the back arch makes it a lot harder. if i did it with a lean it would be like a speed rep.

The grip work was the most impressive thing today mate - Toby did a one hand pinch with 2x20kg plates with 7.5kg of chain through the middle (that it, nigh-on an extra 7.5kg at the top of the lift).

12 sec hold with 2 20's and hub grip with 27.5 too - never bother logging grip training.
