Re: squatting barefoot


I agree with Ash, however this reminds me of a funny story. When I was in Prague at the 1999 Junior worlds after the day had come to an end. There was a masters lifter who would be well into his 50’s from Germany training on the gear in the warm up room. He must of done about 15 – 20 sets of 3 squats with 300kg plus barefoot. The temperature was freezing, the funny thing was he was swigging from a bottle of port between each set. This was the norm, one of the European lifters told me that he had been doing the same thing for years and years.
