squtting for the first time

  1. squtting for the first time


    I just tried squatting for the first time i made it up to 300 pounds 10 reps feeling i could do more
    how does this compare to other lifters?

    p.s any pointers (full motion here p.s)


  2. hard to believe u do 300 for 10 that puts ur max in the upper 400s for the first time squatting umm.... dont believe it

  3. LMAO no you did not do 300x10 for a full squat for your first time.

    Olympic YouTube- Squats with 135 kilograms/297 pounds

    Powerlifting YouTube- Mark Rippetoe: Coach Rip Squats 315x10

  4. What were you squatting with? Free weights? Smith rack? Leverage machine? Bowflex?

  5. 10 reps? 10 1/10 reps could equal one full rep I guess.

  6. you may have done what one of my friends call a squat, i call it the *** squat (not calling you a ***, just saying my friend squats like one).. hard to explain how he does it, but damn is it no where near a real squat..

    I loled....

  14. Training for a long time weighting 200 pounds most of my mass is in the legs about 16% fat
    funny that i just tried squats today with a Smith rack p.s
    Im gonna try harder on my next leg day and we will see how it goes

    Im 22 training for real for about 3 years and training ****y for about 8 years

    5'10.7 p.s

    also the shoulder is anoyyed by the squat is there anyway to reduce pressure on the shoulder?

  15. Ever seen one of those manta ray things? Plastic mold that contours your shoulders and trap area that has a groove for the bar. Should distribute the weight better.

  16. I dont know where to get those but how about some foam?

    Foam would work to relieve some pain as to where the bar touches,although it is more likely your form or the fact that your body is unused to bearing that type of weight. I would rather like a video of you doing your sets and reps posted so we can help you further. I am fairy incredulous as to what you have stated.

    First of all get out of the Satan (Smith) machine and squat with a barbell.

    What he said^^^^

  20. Im moving to new york soon so will have proper supervision and will attempt more free weights until then its the rack for me
    like i said i tried to go all the way down
    also i felt like i could do more then 10 so i will attempt higher weights
    and will get a video if possible soon
    p.s recomping for some time and damn my jeans feel tight do they have special jeans for big people?

  21. When squatting, make sure you're going below parallel when you go down. Definitely try to get on a real squatting rack with a barbell instead of the Smith machine as well...

  22. Meh, below parallel with 300 pounds? Asking for bummed knees.

    maybe with 300 lbs.. but going below parallel has helped my knee stability..

    I go below parallel when I use light weight doing high reps. When I go heavy I stop at parallel so I don't put undue stress on me knees.

    If you are preforming the squat correctly there should not be undue stress on the knees, that is a myth. Helpful articles;

    exactly i have more pain in my kees from locking out deadlifts then squatting.

  28. Just curious, what is the advantage of using heavier weight and not going below parallel vs. using lighter weight and going below parallel for the full range of motion?

    I'm not great at squats by any means, but I know that I can put on 205, maybe 225 and do a few shallow squats, and not much over 155 if i'm going below parallel. I started doing the lighter weight/full range of motion because I had heard that stopping at parallel was worse for your knees but now I'm not sure what to believe.

  29. Good numbers for the smith, but stop using it. Smith is bad.

    Do free squats. I'm thinking that 225 free squat will be more challenging than 300 in a smith machine. You'll also be doing more work that way too. The only thing stopping you from doing it is you. Anyone can spot you while you're squatting, all that have to know is if you want them to help you lower the weight (optimal) or try to stand you back up if you're stuck (need a more trusted spot for this)

    Do it, no excuses.

    dude, you're 200lbs, far from qualifying as someone who needs to shop at the Big and Tall store....
