Great job Daniel!
never seen this but know the guy has what it takes to be called "the next Coleman". Heavy ass training right there. All what BB is about (opposite of Wolf's training).
After seeing this, the guy has erased the possible doubts that I had that he is going to be great.
Heavy well executed Squats FTW!!!!

He needs to get on board with Hany, take a year off and blow away the competition in 2011.

My lifting videos
There are few pro bodybuilders that at least hit a good parallel and demonstrate how to Squat right. Cedric is one of them.
Smith machine is not the greatest thing, but I know that if a guy Squats like that and does that kind of lunges.. he surely Benches free-weight..
Your memory is flawed.
ATG is a better squat, I've never said that it is the only way.
Smith machine is a crap piece of equipment. That doesn't preclude people from using it.
How is Smith it a piece of crap? i love doing them. I don't treat it like a regular squat though. Sometimes i do them after squats to try to isolate and focus on my quads.
it allows me to ballance in a way where i focus on quads and less on glutes and hams. kinda like this.... its a bit exaggerated but you get the point....
P.S. everyone is talking about Cedric's squats but wasnt he saying in the In The Trenches vids that he hasnt been doing squats and he feels like they may not be for him?.. o dont remember exactly what he said
The smith machine locks you into a predetermined plane of motion that isn't suited to your body. It creates more shear forces at the various joints involved (I posted a paper on this, although it lacked a measurement at the lower back). It doesn't require you to balance the weight which creates even more force transferance issues (e.g. co-conctraction of the hammys are needed to keep the knee from being pulled apart). Add to these simple points, of the many, is the point that a lift performed in a smith is often counterbalanced so that you don't actually lift the weight in a manner that effectively recruits the muscles.
You'd be better off doing a single leg leg press.Quote
