The biggest thing I have a hard time believing is that you squatted 465 for 10 reps at a little bodyweight of 185 lbs.
That puts your max, RAW, somewhere between 550 and 650, which means you ARE probably the strongest person EVER in the squat in the history of high school athletes at that bodyweight, possibly any bodyweight under 250 lbs.
Yeah, I believe you. Hahaha!
I never knew delivering newspapers lead to a big squat.
How’s that smith machine working for you? If you add up 4 1/4 squats does that equal 1 full squat?[/quote]
First off, I don’t think that 185 is “little” for 5’6", especially when most of it was muscle. You don’t have to believe me…BUT I stand by my numbers. Strength is genetic on BOTH sides of my family.
I don’t know what my max squat was because I NEVER tested it back then. For the first year of lifting I trained legs 2-3x a week and could leg press more than 800lbs by the end of the year for “good” reps. The first day I squatted in a gym, after more than a year of training, I squatted 315 for reps, ATG, no belt, AND I was 14. I’m guessing it was because of GOOD genes, a myriad of sports played, and heavy lifting on my legs. I don’t use the Smith machine except for shrugs.
