    I squat exactly 205 and I know I could do more with a spotter. I work out at home with a power rack and when I go just below parelel with 205, it is just enough weight that for a second there I am like 'oh s%$&' but I can always push out of it. Anything more than that scares me to do on my own. I do 10 reps normally. I never go to failure, because I do not have a spotter and I do not want to get stuck.

    I usually do them something like this:

    Warm up:
    ATG Squats 12-15 reps/ 80#
    Sumo squat 12 reps/ 135#
    Sumo squat 10 reps/ 185#
    Sumo squat 10 reps/ 205#
    Sumo squat 10 reps/ 205#
    Split squat 8-10 reps 135#
    Split squat 8-10 reps 135#

    So after I fatigue my legs with the squats, I do split squats and go to failure there.

    Then I was stuck around 130 for a while because I was underestmating what I could do, I just had it in my mind that I needed to be able to squat my body weight. Then a round of HST training got me up to 185. Then I had surgery and had to start over again from scratch with just the bar (not because I lost all my leg strength, but because my core got cut up from surgery and was weak). But now I am lifting more than I was before.

    100 lbs for 12 reps X 3 (parallel)
    up to 140 lbs for 6-8 reps X 3 (parallel)
    60 lbs for ATG squats (12X3)

    I started about 2.5 years ago with a set of 5 lb dumbbells (I was extremely underweight when I started lifting). I stayed with just db's until about a year and a half ago when I moved up to about 40 lbs and gradually increased from there. I work out at home and don't have a squat rack, so I could probably squat even more, but it takes a lot of strength to squat down and get the loaded barbel onto shoulders from my couch.
    On a mini-cut, then onto maintenance mode for the summer.

    205 for 8 reps is my working set right now. I can get 225 up for about 5. Took me about 2 years to work up to this.

    I started seriously lifting in April of this year...but didn't incorporate squats into my routine until May. I started out with the bar and up until last month, I couldn't do more than 95 lbs. But after blocking out all those mental thoughts that I couldn't squat more and trying to get my form right....I was finally able to squat 145 last week for 5 reps!!!! I was so proud of myself....I had waited so long to be able to throw those 45's on the bar. So it took me about 6 months to go from just the bar to 145....I feel like it should've taken less time to progress in weight, but I'm just happy to have been able to break the plateau on my own, without a spotter.

    I do 135s ATG for reps and 185s to the bench for reps. I have done 205 for reps but I have to be more in a bulking phase for that to feel comfy for me. I respect this exercise and generally don't push it. I have been lifting for just over 2 years (total) and do all manner of unilateral squat work, front squats, etc.

    Squatting and deadlifting are my two favorite exercises because of how powerful they are to the entire body. Squatting has done the most for me in my every day life. It has strengthened my hip/groin area and given me a flexibility and health in that area that I have never had in my life before. This pays off in all manners of ways. I play semi-professional full contact football (yeah, there are women's teams) with a team average age of 25-30. I am the oldest player. Overall, they lack the flexibility in hip flexors that I have due to my squat work and also the strength. The work that I do in the gym pays off majorly in this sport.

    Interesting thread. I have been "squatting" for 3 years now. One of my most loved / most hated exercises for sure!

    I do 205 for 3x6
    Followed by 235 for 2x3
    Below parrallel

    I have never squatted "Sumo" other than as a dumbell Plie type- I never considered using a weight heavier than 80lbs- but after reading this I do believe I will give the barbell a try in this style!
    Thanks for the idea!

    I can do a full AT squat for reps (6-8 reps) at 95lbs now. I can probably do more but i injured my back falling down some stairs and when i put more weight on the bar it start to hurt on the way down.

    I took me a few months to get there as I haven't been training squats very much in the last two years or so (been focusing a lot on deadlifts).

    just recently worked up to 95 lbs, atg squats, 3 sets of five reps last week.

    It took me about three months to work up from the bar to this, i figured i could do more early, but i don't want to get overzealous.

    These days... post baby (after the mess the "Butcher of Gaborone" did to my abs) and with the wonderful thing of having to step over an 8inch bar to unrack and rack the bar... 200lbs... pre baby 240for reps and pre head opening 330lbs...
    The 330 took about a year and a half to get from my start point of 100lbs... and these days it's a case of slowly slowly... we'll get there eventually... maybe faster if I didn't have to hop around on one foot with a loaded bar across the shoulders...
    Good luck... enjoy the journey...
    Getting there slowly.... and slowlier

    OK... so all my stats are rubbish at the moment...


    DL - 220lbs.... finally... still aiming for 330....

    WOW! I thought I was doing ok until I saw what you girls are lifting. I only have dumbbells here and I'm currently squatting with 35lbs in each hand, not counting the bar. I know I can squat heavier but my fingers are starting to give out.
    oh, and that's 3 sets of 8.

    Can squat 70kg full ass to grass 5 reps. Believe it or not the barbell squat hasn't actaully been much of a regular in my workout routine, but I built up leg strength through months of weighted pistol squatting and I think because I have a good deadlift aka strong glutes and lower back, there has been a trickle effect on it. I went for a whole 6 month gap where I was doing no barbell squatting at all. But when I went back to it, I could lift way more than what I left it at. When I left it I was only squatting 50kg not ass to grass!
    It's a spill over effect in my opinion, the strength just transfered itself over. I really hadn't been doing barbell squats at all up until the last couple of months.

    It's been about 2 or 3 weeks since I've been going heavy with squats. Just started box squatting 115 x 10 x 3.

    Max squat at the moment is 150x1, working my way towards 160 by the end of the year.

    Winning isn't everything, but wanting to win is.
    Don't think. Just eat. :P

    Been wondering myself what others do and here is your thread!

    Just hit 95# this week, what what my son calls "breathing sets" if there is such a thing:
    3 reps rest 10s, 2 reps rest10s, 1 reps,
    Did one set of the 95-that is including the bar- for the first time this week.
    I have been BB squating only for a few months since it took me so long mentally to belly-up to the squat rack at my gym.

    Felt wonderful but my knee has been "tweeky" since. Not sure it was from the squats or not since it was a heavy leg day all around.
    I was so thrilled because it is 91% of my body weight!!!!!!

    115 pounds for 12x3.

    Squats is one of my favorite exercises. I want to increase the weight but feel i need a spotter before I do.

    My PR for 1 rep is 175. My goal is 225....It's going to happen

    Do you go ATG or parallel? I find that parallel squats put more stress on my knees...
