    yes, I used to full squat with hammies touching calves long, long time ago when I was an Olympic lifter (early 1980s) when doing a lot of flexibility work.

    While I could then only squat 132.5kg, I had much more power and athleticism.

    Sadly, I am just a hack now when it comes to squats.
    I can't wait for Kevin Aitken to join World Powerlifting.

    Is there a reason you stopped Full Squatting, injuries???

    I went for years and years doing lighter strict Deadlifts to save my Back as my knees now are Dicky from Squats or something else, so I didn't want both a fucked Back and Knees.

    just too lazy to stretch for many years.

    I plan on changing, but all I do is talk about it.

    I also get a lot of lower back problems from squatting, which go away when doing other leg exercises (lunges, leg presses, step ups and so on).

    you cannot judge depth by the degree of calves touching hams Jung because of varying leg and calves thicknesses and such, it's why the hip crease rule was introduced in powerlifting..

    The traditional full squat is as it states "full squat" in the full squat and coming out of the hole the prime movers are the butt and quads, the full squat is using a huge amount of muscle, this exercise stimulates the endocrine system like no other exercise.
