Didn’t CF say that Ben’s squats were quite a bit above parallel?
Also, I suspect that Ben could not have squatted 800 lbs under Charlie’s setup because he never did any low rep super high % lifting and I’ve found people who do this generally have predicted maxes that would bury them if they ever actually tried it.
Nontheless, Ben’s squat is the highest I’ve heard from a world class sprinter. I’d guess the average is more like 350 lbs for a parallel squat. I know it sounds unimpressive but plenty of guys (like Asafa according to his coach) aren’t very weight room strong.
Nope. Im sure if you decrease ben track work for a month and increase his strength training he wouldnt have a problem hitting 800 esp with his CNS.
