So, i was thinking, if you’re a new guy, you got that squat technique done correctly, and you’re about 170lbs, don’t you think lifting about 135lbs is at least a minimum requirement, even if you’re just working out for fitness in general?
I began squatting about 135lbs when i had good enough technique, but some of my “buddies”, and other guys in the gym only lift 110lbs, even though they’re close to 180lbs.
My MMA coach also told us to begin squatting at least 135lbs.
So why do i see people squatting as little as 95lbs? Scared of getting “huge”, or scared of injuries? cause they’re not that tall.
Not sure if this is in the correct section, so forgive me if i made a mistake.
