    Just like the title says. Barbell squat your body weight as many reps as possible in a single set. Did one today to finish my workout, will upload later. Upload a vid or just post your weight and results.

    Me - 215lbs for 28 reps (if i can count...)

    Because I can't resist this kind of stuff I just tried this at the end of my session just now. I'm also 215lbs. Here's 215x30 beltless high bar.


    Let's do bench next.

    I'll be down to try this. I just finished my last squat session before a deload today. So I'll probably wait until next Saturday to give it a go. I'd like to think I can probably get at least 15 if not closer to 20 @ 315, so hopefully can do 30+ of 205lbs.

    Just let us know when it’s done during the workout. Kinda like conventional vs Sumo :rolleyes:

    Haha. Shit, maybe I'll just step out in the ol garage gym and give it a go right now. It's only 205lbs. Lol. Don't really think I could even build up fatigue from one set of that.

    I did my full leg workout first. Finished with the squats. I’m on a mini-volume block (break from failure stuff for a bit)
    1. Lying leg curl - 5 sets, 8-12 reps
    2. Leg Press - ascending to heavy 10 rep set with warmup sets of 10-15
    3. Seated Leg Curl 4x8-12
    4. Abductor - 3x12–15
    5. Extensions - 3x10-12
    6. Machine SLDL - 3x12-15
    7. AMRAP squat

    I feel like doing this prior should be mandatory for this challenge :p

    while you were taking your sweet time to respond... I went ahead and did my regular stuff and ended with it

    4 sets of leg extension lying ham curl supersets 15-20

    2 sets of hacks, 3 plates for 12, 4 for 11

    Then the amrap

    215lbs got 26

    I didn't do a full leg workout before this. But i did squat 3x already this week and did 385x10 earlier today. Lol.

    I did mine after deadlift, slingshot bench, leg press, and glute ham raise. It was all low rep stuff though. No warmup on the squat, just loaded the bar and got after it.

    Now I'm at work and have to climb in and out of this truck all night. Gonna be fun.

    So I trained with a couple friends last week and absolutely should’ve taken a video.

    315x20. We called the workout after that set. I was sore for a full week. Doesn’t “count” to me cuz I didn’t vid it but proves my body weight set was bullshit.

    You could probably hit bodyweight for 40-50 on a good day fresh.

    I tried it for bench the other day and got like 33, but got too carried away with speed and wasn't happy with my extension on a lot of the reps.
