    Ultimately its more about good form than how heavy you lift. Lift with good form and eat well and your weights will go up as they are meant to.

    I think that being able to squat your own bodyweight is decent. But I think that I'll feel truly accomplished when I can squat 1.5 times my bodyweight (~340 pounds).

    A respectable lift is more than you lifted the last time you PRd.

    Good question, I don't know.

    but thanks for the reminder of the lift, I think I may stick it in my routine.

    Okay, my reading comprehension is shit today. I missed the "overhead" part of the question.

    If you can OH Squat all the way down without falling on your ass, it's respectable.

    My Back Squat is ~280, but my OH Squat is ~110.

    Bodyweight would already be pretty badass.

    I'm glad you cleared that up. OH squat at 1.5 BW?

    Well Dan John who's pretty much the dude when it comes to Oh squat did 315lbs.

    If you can Oh squat 2 thirds of your regular back squat id say thats pretty fucking incredible.

    I am sure that I could not even press 1.5 BW over my head, let alone try to do a squat with that much weight up there.
    Back squatting 1.5 BW is about my limit when I push the 1 RMs.



    Are you implying that you can?
