    because you have been benching longer than you have been squating

    I don't know why my squat sucks, I rep 410 on the leg press but can barely do 225 when squatting.
     
  4. i think squat uses more muscles and you have stabilzers and shits
     
  5. tru.dat but i mean i walk and run and stand up and shit, i think i should be able to do more than 115

    My squat sucks balls (lower than my bench press) but that's because I've squatted < 5 times in my life. And in the few times that I have squatted, my max reps (4-5) went up about 100 pounds.. in like a 2.5 week time period. So if I continued to squat, I am sure that it would be above my bench in no time.

    squats are fun....so unless you want chicken legs there is no reason to not do them

    Its probably more that your body isnt used to the movement rather than your legs arent as stong as your chest. If you keep doing it your numbers should go up.

    that sounds about right, maybe just a little low on the squat. it sounds like you don't do them often.

    Well yeah, the first time I've squatted was about a month ago, and I've done it like 7 times since then.

    That's not that bad, I've seen people load up the leg press with 700lbs rep that and can't squat 225 parallel.

    I've always had strong legs but I recently partially tore my patellar tendon squatting 405. :hs:
