585 raw....im gunning for 600 just like my deadlift. started powerlifting 2 yrs ago. im a newbie at it, but ive been a natural up until now.. im 37, so i think i have few years left in me to break 1600 raw. ill be happy with that,,,,plus i drink way too much beer..!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
455 about 3 mos ago took me 5 full seconds to pull out of the hole but it seemed like a half hour and the back of my head felt like it was going to explode lol. 180 lb. bw. wide stance neoprene knee wraps cuz I have 2 previous knee injuries no belt.
I've wasted so much time not knowing what I was doing. I've broken my squat down multiple times, and I finally have it now that I've fixed all my weaknesses. At 215lbs BW I've done 300. It's only going up from there.
Ive never used knee wraps. only in the last 6-8yrs started using a belt. I didnt say Im smart. At 42yrs old I stick with 405 with a true bodybuilding stance. Guys trying to look strong with wide stances or too narrow with wraps so tight it just springs them back up. I would like to try a squat suit like Ronnie Coleman uses. I want thicker legs, so I try to have total control with the weight and movement. Not to slow on the way up though. I can use 495 for reps also, but its uncomfortable.
