What do you squat

Right dont need to know KGs looking for how much you squat in comparison to bodyweight. I am only interested in those who do full deep (a$$ to grass) squats.

Thing is I have seen quite a few big guys do partial squats and squat big big weights but not seen many ppl squat big weights a$$ to grass for their size.

I am after reps not PBs

me: I am 67K and squat 80K so thats 119% of my bodyweight

80 - 67 = 13

13/67 * 100 = 19%

    if my maths is right then its @108kg assuming a kg is 2.2lbs

    therfore you would be able to lift 188% of your body weight

    96/108x100=88% +your own bodyweight gives you 188%

    Makes me laugh when i see most people attempt squatting in my gym looks like theire legs are going to buckle and their knees go inwards......they actually look VERY uncomfortable squatting, and they rush through it.

    I can take maybe 45 mins to complete all warm up then 4 sets, yeah i know this ids a long time, but it just takes that long!

    Anyway I'm 82kg, squat 115kg for 4x6

    so I get that to be 140% I think. I definately squat to at least parallel maybe slightly lower, but admit neve have tried squatting arse to heals!

    EDIT sorry for my bad spelling (now corrected)

    I often see these leg press guys try to squat. They are usually quite big but cant squat for toffee, they dont even goto parallel.

    I refuse to deliberately go past parallel unless I'm warming up, when I'll make CERTAIN I go past parallel, at 33% or 66% of my 3 x 6, which is 150Kg +bar.

    Squats?, did you say squats..... ?"RUN FOR COVVVVEERRR"

    As much as i hate the bastards I can only chug through em..

    My best is set at 140KG for 20 reps to just above parallel with a slightly wider than average stance. Still I stand wide on most due to my bloody height.. ASS to the Grass im unsure...never really tried them.... Im the first to raise my hand and say "I could and should go deeper". Im not going to even embarass myself by posting my weights once ive tried them.

    Squats are an aspect of my training im having difficulty letting the ego go.

    I am Ripper... Tearer... Slasher... Gouger. I am the Teeth in the Darkness, the Talons in the Night. Mine is Strength... and Lust... and Power!

    yeah sure this isnt a "I can squat more than you" thread. Its just a comparison to see how much ppl can squat a$$ to grass as I see so many big ppl not even going to parallel. So why dont they just back the weight off abit and go lower, ego methinks.

    I was interested to see what is considered reasonably strong if done properly. Obviously strength should be in relation to bodyweight.

    hello there

    115kg (last sesh) for 3x10

    hams touch calves, which fulfils your criteria

    bw 85kg, which makes my squat 135% bw...

    ...currently!


    I don't really see many people in the gym do full depth squats, I'm the only regular one I know of.

    I had to back off I guess 15 or 20kg to change from parallel squats (don't know if that's relevant to this post)

    I've given up doing anything else for legs at the moment, squats are the daddy pants.

    daddy pants




    never heard that expression before. I only do squat, sldl and calf raises.

    I was training my back last week, and was talking to a fellow gym rat, who that day was doing, smith squats, hack squat machine(Ihad to spot him), leg press, calf raises, leg extensions (he may have done leg curls too- cant just remember)

    I said to him, hell fire Suats is prob nearly enough for me and you'redoing all that.

    He's a decent bloke and knows his training, he about 3 stone heavier than moi - but he started prattling on about he doesnt get any vacularity in hhis legs unless he does all those movements.....

    I was thinking right dont say to him, just say squats are enough to knacker me out as he said and i'd only just done 5 sets of deads and 3 sets of BB rows, "you're knackered?" - "I'm knackered, mate"!

    My best is 130kg for 7 reps and one helped.

    Usually don't go heavy and only do 60kg for 10 reps. I basically use squats as a warmup.


    EDIT: I prefer leg press or hack squats as I find the bar digs into my traps on squats.

    Normally i squat to just below parallel at 170-180kg. Usually go a2g on my last set when i drop the weight down a bit, think i've managed 140 a2g before. This is at a bodyweight of about 90kg 6'1" tall.
