Squatting 3 Plates is like Walking

When I snapped my achilles (on the first event of my first strongman comp) the doctor said it would be 12 weeks before I’d be walking. I joked walking was the same as squatting 3 plates.

After 6 weeks the cast was removed and replaced with the moon boot for the next 6 weeks. 3 days later I figured out how to squat on the smith machine, in the boot, and prove my joke right!
