Hanley for me right now back squat narrow stance, 155kg x 3 bar up
last week good fronts 72.5kg x 3
have done more but they were not OL fronts and put lots of strain on my wrists.
now when I squatted 205 x3 (belt and wraps ) 28 years ago, with bar down, I was doing around 160 x3 with bar up, guess my best front would have been optomistically 130kg.
I also could SLD 220kg standing on a 4" block.
Now factor in suits because many guys when they mention their squats don’t think that it is worth mentioning and yep I think you could certainly get 50% for a PL guy with suit who does not front squat.
Congrats on your 72%.
Read it again, I specifically mentioned RAW lifters when making my point. That is to say, for a raw lifter, there is no way in hell that their front squat should be only 50% of their back squat (even if the back squat is to just below parallel and in a belt).
If we’re gonna start talking about single ply gear, my front squat’s probably right around 50-53% of it.
Last night I was doing back squat (belt/med stance?/parallel) 275lbs for 6 reps and 155lbs front squat (no belt/deep) for 6 reps. ~56%, however my fronts followed the back squats and my back is still trashed from a deadlift session 2 days ago. Oh yeah, and my front squats suck… come to think of it, my back squats aren’t that good either.
Just because you did 155lbs for 6 reps doesn’t mean you couldn’t have done 225 for 6 reps.
