Yesterday I hit a two plate front squat (never front squatted more than 135 before that) as part of my ME. The most I have back squatted was 315.

I am curious to know how much of a gap there is between your front squat and back squat.

Front max is 320, back max is 420. So FS is about 75% for me but keep in mind I cant back squat worth a damn.

I'm about front squats: around 315, back oly squats (a better comparison imo), same weight for 20 lol.
both done raw, since gear/belt/wraps adds so much to the lift its liek apples and oranges.

i agree. even with a front squat harness in briefs, the heaviest i've gone is 365 for a double. my best back squat is 585 in the gym, in suit bottoms, with the straps down.

I've hit 300 ATG, though I used to front squat a lot. This was back in March or something. My Best parallel squat is 415.

My front squat is roughly 90% of my backsquat, which is about where it ought to be if you squat olympic style.

I'm good for about 500lbs raw, Olympic style, and I've never attempted more than 335lbs for a couple sets of three. I'd guess in the 375lbs range for a max right now.

my best back squat was 635. My best from squat was 455. I'm doing more from and zurcher squats now to help my deadlift and don't really enjoy back squatting at all what so ever.

I'm up to a 340 - 350 front squat and my back squat is probably 400 - 425 right now, all atg of course.

Best back squat is 405, best front squat is 225 off a box. Huge difference but I back squat super wide.
