I'll try it Tuesday, but I'm guessing 10-12 with strict form.

The best I've done was 26 @ 225 with a few working sets before. I was thinking about trying to see if I could do 225 x 25 for 4 sets = 100 reps. I would need very long breaks. Thinking about it hurts.

I would guess 20-25, as long as I didn't get a back pump going on.
I give a f**K!!

Just for example, or ask how many times can you squat 100lbs over your bodyweight.

When I was doing heavier workouts a few years ago, and ending with widow-makers, I made my way up to 250 x 25 with the last 3 reps being pause/breathe reps.
Since my disk injury, I doubt i could get it 10 times. Most since my injury has been about 4, amazing...

I did 40 reps with 225... It was epic and my legs were sore for over a week

I'd say 30+.... I hit 3 sets of 275x20 after pyramiding up to my 5 rep max

I've heard stories at my gym of a guy getting 225x100 before, but it's kind of a friend of a friend thing. I've gotten up to 30 before.

In saying that, comparing your lift numbers with someone else's is NOT the way to go, IMO. There are always going to be individuals who are much stronger than you and there are always going to be those weaker than you, whether they are close to your body mass or size or not. Therefore, you should only compare yourself to yourself, because the only person you are competing against is yourself (powerlifting is different, because that is a sport), and you're only trying to progress your own ability and strength.

Alright, I gave it a shot.
6'4", 196 lbs. 250/25 to parallel
This wasn't as deep as I normally squat, but I went until my knees were level with my hips. If I had done it with my normal form, I think 12-15 would've done me in. I had a few pauses, but nothing over 1-2 seconds. I think I could've squeezed a few more out too, but in my basement, alone, with no spotter, I try not to push my luck.

I have hit 315x20, really not sure how I did it just had a lot of people screaming at me and ignored the pain.

For strict form? I would guess about 20. The most I ever got to on the 20 rep squat program was 245x20 but my top end squat was lower then.

I can do 275 for 20, and while my legs were feeling major pumps I think the thing that was giving out was my upper back towards the end. So at 250, I might only do a few extra.
EDIT: took out a flame comment
