Haven't we established this kid is fibbing?

20 full squats at 225 lbs ? and he weigh(ed) about 160
400 burpee too. A superstar
Possible, but would a person that fit be asking this question, among others.

TBH, maybe that's what some folks like about this site (we cater to the lowest common denominator, no offfense), but personally, I'd like to spend more effort on serious posters. Ok, yes, no one is making me post here. Maybe it's wanting to have some pride in exrx forums and seeeing this kid work you all again and again, eh, sorta pains me.

I've been up over 24 hours again.

hmm seems like you dont believe me oscar, well honestly dont really car. Ive been working hard for what I have and dont lie about a single thing. I started being able to barely squat 100 but now ive progressed steadily. Ive hit overtraining 4 times now and it sucks but i learn my best after em. Dont work up a sweat big guy. I have no pride. I shut my mouth and lift and only ask if my workout is valid which apparently its not. Stfu

That's my point Immortal. You don't need our opinions. If I ever get to the point of 20 rep squats with 1.5 BW, well, believe me, I won't care what anyone thinks of my workout. You are miles ahead of everyone posting on this thread. Screw me, screw all of them. Do yo thing ! Be done with us

Oscar, he's a teenager. Yeah his numbers are probably BS but he asked for genuine criticism on his workout, which we gave him. Ease up on him

does not compute
so you presume his numbers are BS, likely, but otherwise he's being legit?

this is not unlike my take on "broke" thread. We like to "help" so much we ignore the obvious

teens his age inflate their numbers. That's just the way young dudes are. I do however think that he really did design a workout he wants help with
