          i was able to lift more than that on my very first deadlift, this dude is wearing STRAPS and a BELT for what a normal male adult considers a warmup set jesus christ.

        I don't see what padding does for you when you bench. Wood won't get damaged by sweat like the shitty plastic does. Seems alright. Would not use leather lifting shoes though, that makes no sense.

          The pleather padding grips you and keeps you stable. This is just you benching on a park bench. You would absolutely hate that bench.

      If you look at the leather cross section near the heel you can can see it is a full grain hide. It probably will last a life time, I own a couple pairs of full grain boots, the only issue is that these weight lifting shoes will take months to break in.

          Wooden ones are better at keeping the shape and condition of the leather because they absorb moisture better. Plastic ones with a spring work fine and are much cheaper. Seriously man, don't venture into shoe autism

    why retards do this?

    I have cheap underarmour sport sneakers and a hovr apex, the latter is about four times the price of the former. The latter has toedrop and makes free bar squatting very difficult and even dangerous I'd say, the slightest mistake and you will fall forward because it forces your feet to stand in an unnatural position

    these people don't have a clue, it's almost like they design weightlifting shoes without even practicing or asking people who do about it beforehand

        any standing compound at lower reps causes you to shake if you're going hard enough. squats, dls, ohp, whatever. I'm not speaking out of my ass, I've nearly ended up in a wheelchair because I tried to go hard wearing those UA shoes with toedrop and never had an issue with the basic, no toedrop ones.

        Have YOU ever tried to lift with toedrop shoes? You don't have to be a powershitter, just squat close to your 3-5 rep max and tell me how that goes

          Check video 2 where he shows a real world example of an actual human with this issue.
          Also it doesn't have to be so exaggerated. A simple increase in femur length relative to your torso can change your moment arm dramatically. You can only push your knees so far past your toes before things stop working.
          When I squat barefoot I have my knees quite past my toes, with my knees pointing out. A simple pair of weightlifting shoes takes off hundreds of pounds of stress on the knees.

          P.S. a lot of the ~~*science*~~ of mobility is about as well researched as the science of hand washing and vaccines.

            even the genetically deformed gay with legs up to his ears in that video still was able to break parallel and could clearly go lower. he is a complete genetic outlier. 99% of people will not have this fucking issue but are just chronically snapped up from never having moved their bodies for a majority of their life and "muh leverages" is massive cope. squatting is literally how the body is evolved to take a shit - do you think these long femured gays were just shitting themselves standing before toilets???
