ok so my memory is foggy but im sure in Middle school my teacher said its average to bench ur body weight and squat 2 x ur body weight? or it might have been leg press.. Anyways i find this to be a myth
Freshman thru senior year of HS i didnt squat at all wat so ever. maybe once every 2 months in the smith machine.
Freshman year of college Squatted off and on no real routine.
I started in june to hit legs hard started doing the squat machine which works mostly quads and Leg Pressed and did extentions and no hamstring curls because they were too imbalanced from deadlifting.
Well from squatting in August-September now going into October. Im hitting 320 x 3 2 very good reps getting parallel. Ive had a couple ppl watch it and they say competition wise it would be good. Not that i want to compete soon but i want to use strict form for squats...
Now i weigh 170-175 and i Squat 340 x 1 which is a ****ty rep it was 3 weeks ago. I got 320 x 3 today.. However im feeling a Legit max of 340 coming really soon? what do u guys think? is that impressive or just average lol
