Hey /fit/
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 ?
>>
>>35615504

I should mention its free-barbell, not a smith machine or anything gay like that.
>>
>>35615504
Fuck you and your weird ass units of measurement
>>
>>35615504
At least 180kg is when you start to be good at squats
>>
>>35615504
around 180-200kg for a 80-90kg man
>>
>>35616306
>tfw i thought 180kg was a ton of weight til I got there

When you reach that 180kg, you still feel like a weak bitch when you go to PLG and see pple complaining how they got only 250kg at their last meet

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

180-200kg squat (variance because of proportions) is literally top of the line for a natural 83kg lifter. anything higher is because of roids

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.
>>
>>35616691
These are the guys who make fun of low bar squatters.
>>
>>35615504

Good squat is 2x your bodyweight for 1 rep

My current PR is 405x1 (BW = 201)

Aka 184 kg at 91 kg BW
>>
>>35616836
...and?

he does 265lbx5 like that, so

>+25lb for shoes
>+25lb for belt
>+25-35lb for lowbar
>+10-15lb for parallel

he is now a 3pl8 squatter at 139lb, pretty fuggin good
>>
>>35616836
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?

Yeah, I get it, you are stupid. I understand that, you don't need to keep proving it to me.

>>
>>35617059
>>35617020
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.
>>
>>35617081
Try it.
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.
>>
>>35617099

why would i want to go to the one general with zero aesthetic people?

>>
>>35616339
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.

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.
>>
>>35617172
Ok?
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.

>>35617325
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.
>>
>>35615504

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!

I can hit 340 lbs for 1 rep if I am going below parallel and that's it.

I just managed 3pl8 for a double ass to grass the other day though. So I'd say 325lbs 1 RM?
>>
>>35616747
Are you serious? Im 68kg and i squat 160kg after almost a year of serious lifting. I dont think youve been lifting for that long if youre going to say things like this
>>

>goes to a normie tier gym

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.

>>35616691
You're learning too far forward idiot
>>
>>35619690
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?
>>
>>35620308
>>35619690
>>35616769
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

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.
>>
>>35617154
I approve this message.
>>
>>35620694
can you take a wider stance to shorten your femurs relative to your upper body?

pls note that I have no idea if this works, just an idea
>>
>>35620694
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.
>>
>>35620793
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
>>
>>35620874
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.
>>
>>35620897
you are right

>High bar squatting is an assistance exercise

mmm I'll go with front squats
>>
>>35620964
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.

>>35616339

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.

>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.
>>
>>35623532
Do you ever see females squat or dl more than one plate out of curiosity?
>>
>>35623576

In a 3 axis smith with 1000 towels wrapped around the bar maybe.

My gf can easily squat over 1 plate when she trains.
>>
>>35623581
Ah okay. Yay I never see it. Makes me feel much stronger than I am.
>>
>>35623024
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.
>>

At a good gym, you will. I've seen one chick pull 3plate for a triple beltless (more than 2xBW for her) and another just barely miss 4plate for a single.
