How Close am I to a 400 Pound Squat?


#1

I hit 350 3x3 a couple days ago.


#2

you have 50lbs left!

that’s like 13% more!

if you change to kilos you have only 22kg left!

now go drink your milk!


#3

Don’t worry about how long it will take just do it. You might be surprised!


#4

Try and see.


#5

Well, your 1RM might be 350, it might be 500.

Try and see.


#6

If I had to guess 360- 375. But there’s only one way to tell .

Well his 1rm clearly isn’t 350!

It might not be much higher . Young and less experienced guys often rep a few times very close to their maxes . Form and staying tight are a big issue . Often they will rush a max to get through it and break form.

Best thing is for him to test it and see.
