What are some good squatting weights?
What do you guys squat?
I currently have a home gym and I have reached
100KG Squat for 8 reps and 3 sets, ass to grass.
I am 5'9 (hurr durr manlet) and weight in at 14 stone
Would you say 100kg is decent for a squat or should i be aiming at 140kg ?
>messing up your knees with 1 rep max just to have something to brag about
It depends on the depth and style. I don't really know what anyone means when they just say '3 plate', since all I see anyone doing in the gym is going to parallel.
I'm doing 225x10 in this video barefoot and high bar, can probably do about 12 reps. I hit 265x5 also barefoot just a few days ago.
With olympic shoes and a belt I could probably hit 20-30 pounds more.
I'm 139 pounds at 5'8" and never see anyone my size doing this kind of weight
you mean injecting roids?
180-200kg squat (variance because of proportions) is literally top of the line for a natural 83kg lifter. anything higher is because of roids
put some shoes on you fucking elf
your form is shit too
dude shut the fuck up.
I squat over 180kg when I'm at 83kg and thats when I'm cutting. I've been training for less than 3 years and im natty. 180kg is not an impressive squat for anyone who actually does PL.
I don't mind people doing low-bar. I switched to high bar because I lean forward too much on low bar. My femurs are 31% of my height so no matter what style I squat, I get forward lean.
5'7, 73 kg
Currently at 127 kg x 6
Any male below 100 kg should be able to squat 1.5x or 2x bodyweight squat for at least a max.
Aiming to squat 140 kg x 6 at the start of March, provided I don't miss reps and deload. Doing Candito Linear.
Yes, 100 kg ATG x 8 is good, at least for a normie gym goer. Also depends on how long you have been training. Keep doing them and your numbers will rise.
lol. You're right, he's gonna add 100 pounds to his squat because he squats in a belt, shoes and lowbar.
Jesus fucking christ, is that what you dyels actually believe?
fucking try it genius, don't argue with me, just try it,
I could squat 320 for one rep in May 2015, low bar. My high bar was about 40 pounds less than it is now.
100 pounds isn't unreasonable. I think that with a belt, shoes and sleeves I could do 370.
You'll get flattened.
Yes, those things help(especially the longer you use them, you get better at using a belt), but not that much.
I'm telling you as someone who is a lot stronger than you, both raw and in a belt.
Go to PLG, tell them your hypothesis.
You are wrong, I am right. Case closed.
I'm curious too. Ever since getting on TV, my squats exploded from 135 kg, gonna try 160 tomorrow. And that being for 5, I can't help but wonder if I don't already have what it takes to squat 180 for at least a single. Gonna stick with the program ofc, but you probably know how the desire to test your max is unreal at times.
>who is their strongest lifter? i bet hes a fatty
outta my way, twink fackin' shits
I did not post these- >>35616907
I don't care what I could do low bar. I would have to train for that style to become decent again at it
What I can say is that I can high bar around 140kg, deadlift around 190kg and half squat 3 plates for 10 reps. Those numbers are not just conjecture unlike the 370 lb low bar.
140 kg highbar and 190kg dl arent impressive, not enough to talk about.
I highbar for lulz 175 kg(literally train it once every couple months) and dl 250 kg and I dont really consider myself strong in terms of PL.
You act like I am making an affront to your abilities. I did not, until just now, know anything about you.
Now I'm curious to see someone under 139 pounds and over 5'8" squatting 4 plates deep.
Post a video, or else you're clearly E-statting. Not even Alex Kang is as strong as you claim.
ooooh my fault man, i thought you were OP.
Im way heavier than you. Although from that vid, you are either shorter than 5'8 or heavier than 139.
Only facts dog, only facts.
Listen you don't have a bad squat for a guy your size but what you dont understand is that like once you start getting heavier in weight, there is a crazy fucking difference.
The difference between 320 and 370 is nuts, just the feeling of walking the weight out. As weight gets heavier, the difference between weights becomes bigger.
Seriously, just walk out with 370 next workout, you will abandon your pretenses of squatting it very quickly.
Wow, such badasses here, holy shit! Everyone in this thread squats more relative to their body weight than anyone but a handful of people I have ever seen at 5 different gyms over the course of the past four years. All natty of course. Congratulations guys!
Why are you surprised by that?
You are on a fucking fitness forum, talking to people who go to the gym and hang out on fitness forums.
95% of people in gyms are just people coming and going, they arent really "into" lifting.
Go to a serious gym, you will see loads of strong natty guys.
>goes to a normie tier gym
>thinks this is representative of strength worldwide
Also, most people at the gym dont really take doing squats and other leg accessories to seriously. The people on this board care more about fitness than the average gym goer, as is apparent by them coming to a fitness forum to discuss fitness.
Im 5'10" but i said lifting seriously for a year. I played soccer most my life so when i stopped playing and started hitting the gym more than twice a week i my legs were already pretty stong. I basically went into lifting t-rex mode
I can't avoid leaning forward because of how long my femurs are compared to my torso and shins. If I sit up straight, I fall back because my center of gravity will be 6 inches behind my heels.
My femurs make up 31% of my height.
The average man's femurs are 24% of his height.
Can you grasp physics?
My femurs measure 21 inches in length. In other words, I have the femurs of a 6'2" man and the torso and shins of a man shorter than 5'7"
(I am 5'7.5")
This page has a calculator that predicts height based on bone lengths
don't be a pussy, even people with long as fuck femurs can high bar squat with perfect form, they just need more flexiblity and core strengh which you clearly haven't
dont make excuses you little pussy
I weigh one hundred and forty pounds. You're kidding.
Can you read? Can you understand leverages?
You're a fucking retard. People with proportionally long shins and torsos relative to their femurs can squat beautifully.
I have short man shins and torso and tall man femurs.
The only way I can squat upright is using a smith machine or an extremely wide stance.
I was the guy giving you shit before.
I also have long femurs, but I squat lowbar in heels because I compete in the IPF.
The guys giving you shit are retarded, it really doesnt fucking matter if you are a bit forward.
HOWEVER, if you do want to be a bit more upright and want to persist in using that narrow of a stance and not turning your feet out more, use more knee flare.
Knee flare is basically a godsend for guys who want to hit depth but have long femurs.
I know leaning forward is common when you lift 95%+ BUT is a mistake, shitty form if you like those terms because you are not using your anterior chain in an efficient way and that's why you shoot up your hips and go forward
having long femurs is a disadvantage but is not an excuse to squat with bad form, if he places his feet a little bit wider and works on core strengh he could perform the high bar squat in an efficient, safe way
There are lots of reasons he leans forward.
He may also be tracking his knees farther forward because of his long femurs.
It can be a quad weakness.
He could be cranking his elbows too far back thus tipping him.
There are tons of reasons, but honestly it doesn't fucking matter that much. High bar squatting is an assistance exercise.
I mean it is.
An olympic squat is just an assistance exercise for the clean.
Or high bar can be an assistance for low bar squatting(what most people compete with), so yeah its an assistance exercise, same as front squats.
Fucking this. Got 405 lbs thought I was strong. Saw a guy at my school hit 450 lbs felt weak. Finally hit 475 lbs, saw a guy at my local gym rep 500 for 3. Still feel weak as fuck. It never fucking ends.
>mfw I'll never be the strongest guy at a gym
When you do something other than lifting weights, where the only thing that changes is the number of plates on the bar and the entire objective is to make more feel like what less used to feel like in the first place.
Stop being one of those weirdos who *only* trains in the gym and nothing else, and you'll experience your strength coming to life. The gym is dull, uniform training and if it was anything else it wouldn't work so well; find a sport to actually use it on.
Can I get a depth check desu senpaitachi?
Just got the shoes and this is a PR for me.
No, you can still see when your femurs are parallel with the ground, unless your gut or thighs physically stop you getting to depth, and they won't until you are pushing 150kg bw
>mfw I'll never be the strongest guy at a gym
This is the best way to be. People at my old gym couldn't tell the difference between 315 and 450 in terms of strength, anything above 225 was just an abstract concept.
Consider yourself lucky to be at a gym where you're the smaller fish.
This. When you realize you can play a mean game of rugby, Ruck heavy packs through the mountains, hold girls up and fuck them and win state wrestling championships with way less than a 4 plate squat you start putting things in perspective. Training 1rm strength past a certain points has severe diminishing returns for real world shit.
The Ranger PT test includes 185 lb bench press for reps and 225 lb deadlift for reps. There are guys who graduate and go on to honorable careers as army rangers who can barely do one of those. Doesn't stop them from succeeding at tasks like running around in heavy gear all day and hand to hand combat.
Fuark mirin, wish i had that kind of progress.
My 385 highbar beltless i did the other day, pretty happy about it.
>2nd week of SS over
>only 55kg squat
I really dont understand how people can lift this this much after +/- a year of training, i can hb squat 150 kg , dl 180 and bench 105 after 1.5 year of training and im pretty happy with it, but according to all these numbers im making pretty shitty progression
/fit/ tends to bullshit about everything, and even without the bullshit these sort of things tend to attract answers from people who're proud of their outcomes (which, again, due to the aforementioned bullshitting will skew towards higher numbers).
