Do you count bodyweight doing squats?

Hello, I'm wondering if ISTizens count their own bodyweight when doing squats, none of the other 3 big lifts inherently use bodyweight so I'm wondering whenever squats are diffrent.

For example: when I bench with a 60kg barbell, thats a 60kg bench, no questions, but when I weigh 80kg and I squat with a 60 kg barbell, is that a 140kg squat, or a 60 kg one?

    Even if you would be moronic enough to count body weight you don’t lift your whole body when doing squats.

    you dont even though legs lift your body too. yep 70%max of squat is actually more than 70% but you still get comparable reps with other lifts because quads and gluts have good strength endurance. might be caused by legs being inherently more aerobic or maybe they cannot be as activated as arms at least in untraineds (90% in quads vs 98% in biceps).

    THINGS YOU SHOULD COUNT FOR SQUATS
    >THE PLATES
    >THE BAR
    >BODYWEIGHT
    >ENVIRONMENTAL PRESSURE
    >ELECTROSTATIC ATTRACTION BETWEEN YOU AND THE FLOOR
    >THE STRONG AND WEAK NUCLEAR INTERACTIONS
    >THE CHANGE IN REFERENCE POINTS CAUSED BY YOU AND THE BAR ACCELERATING SLIGHTLY DIFFERENTLY DUE TO GRAVITATIONAL ACCELERATION
    >THE OUTWARDS CENTRIFUGAL FORCE PRODUCED BY WHERE YOU'RE STANDING RELATIVE TO THE EQUATOR
    >THE POSITION OF THE MOON IN RELATION TO YOUR LIFT

      I have a formula that I use. It accounts for body weight, elevation, micro gravity, moon phases, electrical interference, and tide, as well as some less significant effects. This morning I hit a new PR of 413.657 lbs and only needed to load 175lb to do so.

        I want a program that tracks the orbits of asteroids and auto calculates out a factor to account for their gravitational influence by and in which direction(s)

    You should only count the added weight - your clothing, dead skin, hair, and content of your bladder and intestines.

    I only factor it in when I'm trying to approximate one type of two legged squat for one with an uneven distribution. Even then I have to round down a lot because of stability loss.

    if anything you ought to consider bodyweight in the inverse to the weight of the lift
    ie; a 315 squat is more impressive if done at 180lb bw vs at 245lb bw

      no because if you are heavier then you need to lift more weight when you squat so the heavier you are the more effective it is
      like adding extra weight to the bar basically

    lifting your own blubber is harder but it's not counted for some reason.
