Bensehoul Brahim says

Chick Finnegan says
Need to loosen dem hips. Baaaaaad butt wink
This idiot claims natural. Hahahahahahaha
Xavier Perry says
get a better camera man please. he recorded the bar going up and down pretty much. not how your form was
Rashy Trapstar says
if your standing at 6ft4 that depth is perfectly fine. It is so much easier for short guys to squat deep. However he’s depth is deep enough for a power lifting competition in my opinion
Anyone know the song played at 2:25
The look that those crossshitters on the back gave to Mike…
Mirin’ ? Lmao
Go out at the hip more not down it’ll fix that butt wink
Damian Webber says
This guy is a champion. I don’t know why anyone would laugh at him.

So, basically the powerlifting squat is a normal low bar squat, and the bodybuilding squat is a high bar paused squat.
DW B says
Haters are pussies that prolly dont look any better than me.
Mike O’ Hearn loves being Mike O’ Hearn.
Crossfitters be like “If I keep training like Mike Ohearn, I will look like Mike Ohearn someday. #dedication”
Matt M says
“Watch how I break the knees” and the camera guy just films his upper body!
Thomas demartino says
Rip your so fucking correct its silly and another thing this guy has a very bad habit of mixing tin identicals with real 45s so I dont know wheather hes bullshiting or not about any weight hes benching squatting or deadlifting .
Thomas demartino says
Another thing hes not 6. 3 ive seen him at expos im 6 and he might be at best an inch higher.
Ivan Raynovski says
There is no such thing as ‘powerlifting’ or ‘bodybuilding’ squat. The squats are two types: Deep squat – where your hip joint goes lower than your knee joint and BREAK PARALLEL depth. There is also a Shallow squat – where you put a fuck load of weight on the bar do a hip thrust and re-rack the bar thinking you have done something amazing, which is what Mike O’Hearn does. The way his lower back curls when he tries to pass parallel with close to no weight on the bar is a joke. Considering how many years he has spent lifting weights, his hip mobility is non existent.
your back is rounding during your squat
Dwain Pipe says
I like squats. I practice in the mirror.
josh leonidas says
Why do people hate mike so much? full of shit or not he still dose more then 95% of people for fitness and inspiration.
Arnolds IOS says
He never showed the damn shoes. Plus! He only filmed his upper body in a squat video! Smh retarded camera man
SIB Tropic says
Trevor bulked up holy shit
Pontus Ozzy Andrén says
seriously, what about the “butt wink” isn’t it important to keep the back straight through out the lift??
Next time have the camera man video tape the front view
I read on his wikipedia article that he has squatted 370kg … and yet his back rounds before even hitting parallel. What a joke!
SSG Goku says
hes tired after a couple reps of 135? do you even squat 315 on a smith? LMFAO
Jonathan Ⓥ says
Buttwink with 1 plate.. thats pretty shit.
Carl-Johan Hellstrom says

David Díaz Vallejo says

Rob Hannigan says
Why’d you go punch the camera guy out for Mike? Where can I buy that hat from anybody.
Adam Sabo says
