Kelsey Green is a 17-year-old from Bullard, Texas, who weighs 112 pounds. Sounds normal right? Now here she is squatting 350 pounds...

Weak. You don't even have to get to 90 degrees for squats anymore?

The wraps are for safety not to help her lift more. Granted wraps do give you probably a 10-15 lbs boost, but they are used for safety

Using knee wraps does not affect the outcome of the lift. Same with gloves, chalk and straps. That kid was protecting her knees. Period. It was an impressive lift for a 112lb , teenage girl. Let's leave it at that.

@Tiger1242 - Call me insanely stupid then. That was my point, I'm not a power lifter because I don't do stuff like wrap my knees. It's stupid and a crutch. Lift what you can, or don't. It's the same as gloves with me.

Also, form was bad, period. Mainly just with her stance. The squat itself didn't bother me for a 17 year old girl.

Man yall are either insanely jealous or insanely stupid
A. Of course her knees were wrapped, she's at a powerlifting meet EVERYONE WRAPS THEIR KNEES
B. Her squat got 3 white lights because it was a legal, valid squat. Her form is designed to help such a small person lift such a large amount of wait and it isn't an uncommon styles

Sadly, still better form and more weight than 93% of OT males.

A) Knees wrapped - bullshite
B) Her feet were so far apart and almost pointed outwards

That whole thing was weird. Yes, she's a girl and a kid but that's the point! Why would adults not teach her correctly. This is a quick way to injure yourself at a young age.

1.) she looks like a fricking midget
2.) her form was terrible. I wouldn't reward myself a squat that didn't come close to parallel. Kudos to her for trying at least I guess. She didn't hesitate to jump under the load.

How the hell did that shitty squat get awarded three white lights?! Under no circumstances should that be considered proper powerlifting depth.

One of the worst squats I've ever seen.
