I was just curious if you wouldn't mind posting what kind of timeline you had (how old were you/how much did you weigh/programming used/etc.) in terms of hitting the milestone #'s in the squat (400,500,600,700,and up). Thanks man and keep up the inspiring work.

My squat always came pretty naturally. I had my high schools squat and front squat records after just over a year of squatting. Coach made us go pretty deep, but i cant say for sure it was to parallel, but it was pretty close. As HS senior at 17, 185lbs i back squatted 315x22 reps and did 405x at least 10-12. Front squats did 315x20something and 455x5+. I know the rep conversion for front squats was 555; cant remember back but it was over 6, prolly around 650; but i never did either for a single.

didnt do any squats for 2 years during marines and squatted 495x5 first time back at 18-19 and 180lbs.

by 22 i was doing 405x20; still not into PL

at 23 i did 750 in wraps in comp, and missed 775 on depth. this was the first time i used wraps.

at 24 i squatted 700 raw no wraps for first time at 227.

lots of injuries and school later, i squatted 800 in wraps at 27 and 225

last year at 29 i did 760 no wraps at 230; had more in the tank.

this at 30 ill exceed that.

i eventually want 800+ raw, and 900 in wraps
