180kg/400lbs Squat at 80kg/176lbs, Beltless


Bah I actually wanted to max out at like 190-200 kg, but that's all I could do. Still the strongest I've ever been, at 80 kg/176 lbs body weight. Once I go back to bulking it'll be fun to see what numbers I can put up!


Nice and deep squat.


That looked pretty comfortable; not the best angle though. Any reason in particular you don't use a belt? It looked to me like you could probably hit 190 kg happily, but from what you said it sounds like you tried and didn't get it.
