          The only time anyone has ever looked at me while squatting was when I had 3pl loaded and took all the weight off of one side like a retard.. Whole gym looked over at me when that shit catapulted off the rack.

              I hit 1/2/3/4 literally and honestly within 9 months of first touching a barbell so I understand how these arent impressive lifts to people who lift seriously, what I said was "most people in commercial gyms dont squat that after several years, if they even squat at all." which is 100% true. if you squat 315 (sub 1 year goal for many if they put the effort in) you already squat heavier than something like 98% of the population. You dont understand how low the bar is set. I have seen maybe 4 people squat 3plaet or more to depth in the year and a half Ive been going to my college gym, think about how many people dont even have a gym sub.

                I think people also underestimate injuries and how a lot of people are just genetic cucks and not built for it - they don't recover well, get injured, etc. I am:

                [...]

                To give you some inspiration OP - I am in my 30s, lifted for 15 years, but I don't back squat due to injuries.

                I DL 3x8 @225 and front squat 3x8 @ 135 (lol1plaet).

                4/3/2/1 are really good numbers irl, outside of professional body builders.

                Of course, if you are going to lift, you shouldn't use the "I am not professional" excuse.

                I have been active all my life and I know guys my age who are clearing 6-plate deadlifts and doing stunts professionally from the MA/parkour world. 90% got injured and dropped out though. Some from very "basic" shit - one kept rolling his ankles more and more on flips and had to give up parkour. Another got his back injured and can't lift anything but moderate, etc.

                I guess the moral is - don't get hurt.

                unless you are completely in love with the activity of "running" I suggest that you drop it entirely, both MA and steady state cardio are antithetical to gaining strength/muscle. being strong is helpful for MA and of course you want to keep your heart healthy but even JUST the MA training should be plenty for health-centered cardio.
                There's no big reason stretching would keep you at sub 1/2/3/4, what routine do you run / how many days a week do you lift weights? Remember that getting strong helps every single other activity you do, same cant be said for running for example.

                I think running is very good for long-term health.

                I lifts 3 times a week:

                A: Bench / row. Accessories: curls, tricep extensions/dips

                B: Weighted pull ups, OHP. Accessories - bw squats, box jumps. Lat pulldowns in chin to solar plexus ROM for muscle up training.

                C: Deadlift, baby weight front-squats.

                I always do stuff like planks, hip thrusts, and abs because otherwise I get lordosis from sitting all day. These are also morning run/afternoon lifting days.

                I do MMA 3 times a week between lift days.

                running doesnt do anything that the mma + lifting already does, you would get stronger faster if you stopped it and spared more energy/recovery for your lifting.

                work capacity in the context of either lifting weights or doing martial arts improves faster when you actually lift weights or do the martial arts. Im not saying running brings no benefits at all, Im saying it doesnt bring anything that isnt already covered more specifically by the lifting + sparring and conditioning he's doing. If I'm getting gassed too quickly during jiu jitsu rolls I start rolling more/with less rest, I dont try to start swimming really far in the hopes that it translates to doing jiu jitsu (or lifting weights for that matter). Running takes away from the recovery of lifting and rolling.

                the reason wrestlers and football players run a lot are slightly different, but neither apply to lifting or martial arts in general.
                Football players have to run a lot while they are playing football, obviously there's excellent carryover and it doesnt require a football field or coaching, therefore its an acceptable substitute for football itself.
                Wrestlers run a lot because conditioning in wrestling is extremely important, strong wrestlers are always taught to go full blast the entire time of their match and to never let off the gas, doing this more often is the absolute best way to get better at it, the best way to condition for wrestling is to just wrestle really hard a lot.
                The problem here is that if you wrestle balls to the wall every day you will get injured badly in no time; Wrestling is too laborious to use as conditioning itself so it *requires* different exercise for conditioning purposes.
                This does not apply to lifting in general or martial arts in general, you can lift pretty hard 7 days a week getting stronger + increasing work capacity and be fine, you can roll jiujitsu 7 days a week very hard and be fine as well. You cannot wrestle like a wrestler does (I.E 110% throttle no stop) or play football 7 days a week and be fine.
                The main point is that if you have the option between simply doing more of your sport / developing your body or doing a different form of conditioning you should always choose your sport / developing your body as long as nothing prevents you from doing so, running is what you do because something is limiting you from going hard at your main sport for the moment.

                My point is conditioning is not going to hurt your lifts or take away from recovery unless you're trying to be world class in both endeavors. Similar to how wrestlers don't get their conditioning exclusively from mat time lifters don't have to get their conditioning work in exclusively by lifting. You don't HAVE to run or jump rope or whatever it's just another useful tool that a lot of bros leave on the table because they don't want to do something they're bad at

                He has been lifting for 15 years and his deadlift and squat are 225x8 and 135x8 respectively, he is already doing lifting + martial arts 3 times per week each, where the hell is the need for extra cardio that doesnt translate particularly well to either activity (it would be different if his two activities were soccer and hiking or some shit)? Please pay attention. He clearly is either way underrecovered (running 3x lifting 3x MA 3x running is a lot) or is too tired to lift heavy, hence *unless you love running for the sake of gay shit like marathons* you should just drop the running and lift + spar harder so you will get stronger + better at fighting while maintaining the same general cardio. Running doesnt do anything that lifting + martial arts doesnt already do, and they both do many things way better than running. 0 reason to run here.

                You guys are normal, don't let some dyel on this board tell you otherwise. If you try to maintain a general athletic physique naturally, you're not going to be pushing a huge amount of weight. You'll hit some limit based on your genes and activity, and that's it. You have retards telling you to stop running (even though you don't run much) just to increase your lifts for what again?

                I think the 50% of the male population struggle to get into a squatting position, let alone squat 2pl8.
                3% for first
                0% second fags here don't lift

                Not everyone goes to the gym to move weight bigger every time. Some people are training for athletic endeavors, some people are just toughening up some joints in old age. Who cares why someone is in the gym? Play a sport and you'll realize how little carry over conditioning has without technique. 4 plate benchers sometimes can't punch as hard as manlets half their size or move their body up a boulder or do a backflip. What does it matter to be strong when the only task you can perform one specific task? This is coming from someone who squats 4pl8 at 140lbs, getting humbled every week in jitz + sambo and I'm a blue belt.

                I can squat 120kg for 3x5 and can squat 100kg for 3x10. I just find it really funny that people measure their strength by a single rep that they don't even achieve good form or depth on

                If they haven't hit depth, touched chest, or locked out, then they've failed the rep, simple as. But if they can, then 1/2/3/4 for a 1rm is a sufficiently challenging yet achievable good milestone. That's why people use it.

                what's so funny about it? that's literally how you measure your absolute peak strength.
                when people talk about how fast they can run 100m they talk what's your fastest 100m you run.

                not 100m for 3 times or 5 times. you have to have a set standard when you measure something. 1 rep max is a pretty straightforward standard. not 3x5 with 1 minute rest time or 5x5 with 3 minute rest time. but yeah it is fairly irrelevant since you realistically should probably never be doing 1 rep maxes unless you are "showing off", or competing or whatever. its been like 5 years since i have tried a 1 rep max with any lift i have performed. theres just no point really.

                Yeah I understand. I just think people can pull off huge 1RM with shitty form and claim some hugely retarded strength that they don't possess. It just seems like something purely driven by ego. I'm way more interested in somebodies working weight with their sets x reps

                Don't worry they can't, so it doesn't matter what you think. Its obvious to people who are familiar with a lift if it's too a high enough standard. If someone can squat 700lbs to depth with no bouncing at the bottom etc, they actually possess that strength

              kek - depending on what weight he is some of those lifts should be doable by some absolute beginners, I swear some on their first ever attempt.

              Seems a bit like dedicating 15 years of your life to training and practicing almost every week for a sport, boardgame or videogame and getting beaten by someone completely new on their first day. Practicing piano almost every day for 15 years and after all that time you can play a few chords and some dude takes it up on his first day and is better than you!

              Or going to medical school and coming out knowing about as much practical knowledge as the average public could with a google search (oh wait, that's typical...)

            Look dude I don't want to be one of those guys that trolls by saying "you should be hitting 1/2/3/4 for reps in 3 weeks" but 1/2/3/4 are not even close to really good numbers for anyone actually devoting their time to strength training. For women maybe, sure, but not men.

              You sound like a total fucking DYEL retard saying shit like this you know? Body weight is one of the most significant measurements required for taking into account strength level, just spitting out raw numbers like "1/2/3/4 for reps" without context is fucking meaningless. A 150lb dude achieving that is elite level lifting, a 250lb man it's not impressive at all.

          What are you dyels on about? You should be able to squat lmao2pl8 at around 2 years old. 3pl8 at three, 4pl8 at four and so on.
          It's like no one even lifts around here anymore.

          Okay but unironically, isn’t 2pl8s actually really low? I’ve only been going to the gym for about a month and can do 225 for 5 reps, which by the way I might have always been able to do but only recently tried because some HS kids fucking mogged me. Not exaggerating at all, 3 little Mexicans all young as fuck and each about 130 pounds. They all did varying amounts of reps of 225 AFTER doing several sets of lower weights. The lowest was like 3 reps and the strongest did like 10 in fucking skinny jeans. I’m a fat fuck so MAYBE that explains me, but not these actual children. There’s no way 225 is 95th percentile.

            A lot of gym goers don’t even work out legs, and if they do it’s dumbbell/body weight squats, cardio, etc. I would say a 2 plate bench is several times more common than a 3 plate squat even though they take comparable amounts of training to achieve

                That's correct. Unless someone is seriously anatomically fucked up, they should be able to achieve a lmao2plate squat to proper depth within a few months of starting, completely untrained.

                However, that's not the question at hand. The question is how common is it that people can actually do it? And the answer is "incredibly uncommon". Not because it's hard, but simply because very VERY few people actually train squats at all.

      I bench 340 and squat 250 pounds. I think my quads are defined enough so I squat 5x5 180 every 2-3 weeks. Really it’s more like legs don’t require that much work to be decently aesthetic compared to chest and shoulders. Most people don’t want to put in the effort to keep going just for strength reasons, especially when most people aren’t that impressed by a heavy squat compared to a heavy bench or oly lift

                Our school was old and bushleague as fuck, so the weight room was too small to be of any use. Keep in mind too this is in leafland where football isn’t the national religion, so teams don’t get nearly as competitive.
                Our coaches didn’t really bother with training/conditioning, so all we did was was run drills and scrimmage during practice. We didn’t have meal plans or programs.

                Even then, I was able to squat 2pl8 easily, because being fat is the ultimate resistance training.

    This is the kicker.
    Very rare.
    ATG squats are the rarest lifts you will ever see. I bet most guys itt are not getting depth with good hip and ankle positioning. If they are, they are shoelets.
    It took me years to get the flexibility and mobility in my hips and ankles. Then from there even more time to build strength to squat heavy. While doing this I was also focused on all the other lifts. So yeah it takes time and attn to detail which most people do not have. Especially if you have a career and a life. However, if youre an autist like me you grind it out. That said, Id say 2 percent of general pop and 5 percent of fit due to the autism found here.

        Getting low without proper mobility will create 'butt wink'. Basically your hips start to rotate. This can be dangerous to the low back as your spine looses thoracic extension. This is why most coaches will tell you to not go atg. It makes their job easier without opening a can of worms. Doing this is really limiting your range of motion thou and you loose a lot of strength and explosive power not getting down in the hole.
        Working on hip mobilty and ankle mobility will get you there. Theres many different stretches just pick a few and try them. If you dont like em try new ones.
        Hell just holding that stretched position by getting deeper and deeper in that position everyday without weight and maintaining proper form helped me.

    I didn't do proper BB squats for 5, maybe 6 years until a few weeks ago. I got under the bar and worked my way up to 225 without much problem or sacrificing form. I would say 225 on squat is the 135 on bench... most fit people can do it if they attempted it for the first time without being explicitly conditioned for it. Like I think a guy who runs 20 miles a week as his primary exercise could hope under the bar and bust out squats at 225

    The correct answer is that almost none in the overall population can, because they don't train the squat.
    However for a normal male that squats that is literally not even an accomplishment.

        If you physically can't hit ATG, that's ok, but you should be trying to create the biggest stretch possible.

              No, lifting more weight to parallel does. Going extra low doesn't do much.

                What happens when you load up muh more weight, dip BELOW parallel and your body doesnt have the strength to come out of the hole because youve been half reping like a retard?
                Congrats on building a house of cards.
                Ive seen this first hand on more then one occasion where dude folds up or bails. You best be practicing bailing weight because someday your skill will be tested. If you fail to bail, you will be crushed.
                Or you could just get strong down low and not worry.

                Ok, look. You absolute morons.
                You can lift more weight squatting to parallel than you can squatting ATG. There is absolutely zero dangerous about this. Just so we are clear here, are you suggesting otherwise? I hope to God you both just misunderstood me and aren't actually as stupid as it looks.

                Ok. you are a moron. I never told anyone to half rep. If you squat to parallel there is about zero risk of randomly dipping down super far for no reason and injuring yourself. Squatting ATG because you are afraid of that is about the same as walking around with inflatable pool wings on in case you fall into a river.

                It is more dangerous to squat 4 plate to parallel when you can only hit 2.5 ATG than it is to just squat 2.5 ATG, yes. This wont increase your parallel lift quite as fast (because that's an arbitrary specific lift/technique) but will grow more actual muscle (which you could later train specifically to squat max weight to just parallel anyway), be safer during the lift and will be better for your joints in the long term. The reason you stop at parallel is for one or more of the following 4 reasons:

                1) You want to compete some place where all that matters is what you squat to parallel - okay fine, enjoy having better competition stats at the expense of superior leg development. At least this makes sense.
                2) You are a mobilitylet/too poor to buy lifting shoes - this is a poor excuse and you are a lazy shitty lifter
                3) You are egolifting - have a nice day
                4) You took a fat powerlifter's (see #1) word for it - see above

            I would say the biggest challenge for western fatass men isn't squatting 45lbs - it's being mobile enough to squat at all with proper ROM. The squat is always the biggest meme lift at my gym where not even half of them get close to breaking parallel.

      Pretty much everything you said, didn't happen.
      You got folded over for ego lifting and someone probably caught you on camera trying to "squat" 225 on your toes into a quarter squat.
      When I first started squatting my max was 185 and I had been doing pistol squats and flipping tires at my parents' barn for a while for workouts. I squat 200+kg now and it took 6 years to get there and getting injured in between. Not everyone's in the gym looking for numbers you stupid gymcel

    It is very low. Probably 5% or so. Especially if we're talking ATG. Most on here would downplay that weight, because it's not a very impressive feat if you habitually lift. It's attainable for most men if they try. But the thing is, the majority of men do not try.

    People on here will say it's baby weight but very few people at my gym ever squat more than 3pl8 with the exception of a couple of powershitters and PED heads once in a blue moon. Most people seem content with just doing high rep, low weight of around 185-225 when it comes to squats, I think a lot of normies get freaked out by the idea of going really heavy with it similar to deadlifts and just want to get the aesthetics with machines and other less "risky" movements instead.

    Id guess less than 5%, thats way beyond what anyone is going to do without serious training and even most guys who lift dont focus on squats to that extent. If we assume 1/3 of guys in that age range lift regularly, maybe 10-15% of those that do lift.

    Id guess probably 10-15% of IST as well most on this board are dyel beginners but there is a core of gymcel autist powerlifters.

    I can squat up to 3 pl8 like its not a big deal and could go much more, but my core can't keep up and my glutes wont activate adequately, so I just end up with massive quads and hams that already get tight and doms symptoms by the 2nd set...
    I also have knee arthritis which kind of psychologically inhibits my lifts if im not wearing knee sleeves, since I don't think that would really affect a squat in any way. They just feel 'weak' as a point of failure without knee sleeves even though i don REALLY need them.
    3 pl8 is honestly fine though if I can just kind of hold there, my legs look better than 99% of people I know but I have hank hill ayss

          You should add more heavy carries. McGill big 3 gets pushed a lot, but nobody ever really considers the next step. You have to build strength. Do carries - trust me, they'll help.

          You might also want to make sure you're doing knee/leg raises, side bends, fireman's carry styled crunches (so oblique work), and anti rotational work.

          >glutes wont activate adequately
          Add deep squats to your program. If you already squat very deep, add wide stanced parallel squats.

          Start doing pull throughs as part of your warmup.

          You could also benefit from;

          Hip thrusts are also useful but I don't use them myself so I won't bring them up in greentext, as if they're part of my special, magical recipe.

          >I also have knee arthritis which kind of psychologically inhibits my lifts if im not wearing knee sleeves
          Okay, that's fine. I don't think you'll be chasing any naked knee competitions anytime soon anyways. Put your knee sleeves on and quityerbellyaching

              They're extremely necessary. Also, the urge to overcomplicate is going to be real. Just focus on working hard and keeping enough gas in the tank to get yourself home and cook up some steak. If you're so beat you can't do that, you're training too damn hard. If you're not willing to woof down a pound of beef, you should probably lift a little harder.

    well my highest squat is 325 x 1 and I am comfortably repping 225 for 8+, I think the most I ever did was 295 x 2 or 275 x 3.

    that being said I rarely see people squatting as high as I do or as frequently. idk what it is

    Probably close to 99% don’t even squat. So that number is going to be pretty low.

    I took the "squat pill", yesterday I squated 81kg (178lb) for 20 reps and tomorrow I will try 100-105kg (220-231lb) and if everything went well I will include it in my routine

    just low barred 255lb for triples today, been seriously back into lifting for ~4 months but I've lifted on and off for 7 years, most I've ever squatted with correct form and no pain and reps was 275lb, was 17 at the time. squatting heavy with good form never feels "not heavy as fuck", you just get stronger. it's not an "enjoyable" lift in the same sense as a bench or even DL.

    at the gym, with good form, I never really see people squat, and I go to a weightlifting gym. maybe just the time of day that I go but I'm usually the only person there squatting. most I've ever seen was 1 dude doing 4pl8 and he had ass form/not to depth

      ill add the hammer squat thing and the leg presses are VERY popular though, especially with girls. which is ironic bcuz if you want a giant ass very quickly, just squat kek. ruins your ability to find pants

      as a side note I'm seeing a lot more zoomer girls weightlifting now which is pretty cool. not just meme lifts either

    Why would you ever do more than 5 reps?

    Squatting just doesn’t seem worth it any more at my age. I’m 36 and will never be a power lifter, but I always feel like I neglected my body if I don’t do them. I try to back squat and front squat at least once a week. When I was younger every time I’d did 3plts or more my form would slip a little and would have back pain. Now my goal is to just be able to reach 275 for 10 reps if 3-5 sets. Just don’t see the point of going past that at my body weight. At 185x10x3 now so should get there soon.
