Squats at Eastside

Young Jamie King who impressed us last with his 220 kg deadlift. Tonight he popped into Eastside for some squats. Jamie has huge talent. Really deep squatter as he was taught by an Olympic lifter.

His current best is 150 kg at about 67 kg. He has a lot more in him as he thickens his core and posterior chain. Tonight he did 127.5 kg for 5 and then backed off with 100 kg. Tonight was about working on his decent and not going too deep.

Exciting young lifter. Reminds me of when I first started out and weighed about the same.
