    I wouldn't waste your time arguing with Gorbag on anything strength related - he's been half-squatting for the past 35 years:

    Just let him live in his world of specific strength, massive leg presses, and half-squats, he's strong in his own special way.

    What, another bro-scientist joining us talking about "strength" or "general strength" without defining it!

    Define "strength" and give us an adequate testing protocol, that's far better than endless bro discussions of an abstract concept of 'strength'. And yes, it is not uncommon to scientifically test of "leg strength" by doing one-legged press, or even leg-extensions, so what does that tell us about the concept of "strength"?

    Contortionism is much underrated.

    Gorbag, I've defined strength for you before. What happened was you had nothing to say, and you resorted to personal attacks and withdrew from the argument. Why would I bother going down the same road again?

    Halfsquatting??? I squat to the paralell though, just as the guy in the video below! Yes, I am not very proud of my squatting, it sucks, but it is not that poor as the guy below though, I can also squat 315 for 10 reps so go figure LOL:

    You've been half-squatting for the past 35 years - your own words. You can argue with yourself if that's true or not.

    By the way, Rip does not squat "to the parallel".

    Indeed, after putting in all that training there is the possibility of joining the circus. What powerlifter has that option?
