lol, you dont have to rep me or love me brother. haha. i weight 219 lbs and i can squat 330 for 8 reps max. i know it sucks. i've actually been workin my legs more lately. i think i'm doing a lot better than when i used to be able to max bench more than i could max squat. sad face.

I'm 225.

(no bullshit) I can squat 500 10x and I max (at present) 590 (twice).

But all my life I have been able to squat or leg press a lot. All that said, my bench is for shit. I can only bench 270.

Weigh 160, and max at 355. I need to start strength training more often, I just can't find the time or desire.

Some of you guys are puttin up some good weight though, congrats on your hard work.

Depends on how much coke I've done, and hookers I've banged, that particular day.




Honestly I have no idea. Been too long since I've done any serious weightlifting. I normally have just enough time to do some boxing and BJJ. I do some light weights at home for general stability purposes, but haven't lifted seriously in a long time.

I weigh 275 and squat 385 for my last set. Knee problems have ruined my capacity for heavy weights or deep squats. I can bench nearly the same as my squat.......isn't that fucked up?

Weigh 215lbs and I do reps of 315 12 times for supersets. I dont know what I max on, I dont usually spend too much time on my legs at the gym. Half because of laziness and half because im trying to cut down 200-205. Plus from all the years of sports your legs tend to get into shape by themselves, and I find more pride out of upper body strength. Gotta love excuses

Working legs (squating) enhances weight loss according to Men's Health. (I want to say David Zinczenko there editor and author of the book "The Abs Diet") Squating works big muscles in the legs which trigger then need fuel (calories) to work and recover. So you burn more calories throughout the day by working legs. Something like that.


As for squatting... Prior to 4 knee surgeries I was 185/190 doing 8reps at 405lbs and maxing around 500lbs... Now I am 205 and I dont try above 225 pounds for squats. My legs seem to get a bad hurt when I do.

I'm 5'7'' and I weight 155 and I squat around 250... I was into hockey training so legwork was important for me... Now almost never workout with machines, I do alot of body weight exercices....

Alot of people in my gym can do way more than me... but their form sucks balls and they always tell me that I have good posture when doing squats...
