Re: Why are my squat weights so low?

If you are learning the squat correctly and have never lifted before don't sweat it. Your numbers will come up, just keep at it with good form.

In a totally non-trained person the DL should be lots higher IMO. Most people's squat will come up to 70-80% of DL after a while.

Most gym goers squats are 1/4 squats so they can "squat a lot", don't do that!

Look at your progress right now, don't compare! Build a healthy base, you have the rest of your life to get your squat up.

You can also do several programs to up your squat if you chose to work extra hard on it SS, ME black box, hatch squat program etc.

Don't stress just work hard and use good form.
