15, did it at 14 but only to parallel. 15 did it to full depth.
18, I think.
A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook

Was 15 years old as a sophmore in H.s, had been lifting for 2 years, I was a tall fat kid who was uncoordinated as hell, hit 6'4" at 14 y/o. Once I stopped growing I started lifting alot better
17 or 18 if i remember right, though i know i weighed 156 when i got there. got funny looks from the big guys haha. just tend to have strong thighs and knees in my family.
started at 16 & 146lbs
I was 26 about to turn 27 when I got interested in the Squat (serious reality check going from leg pressing to squatting) I think I squatted 315 nov-dec 2001 and 400 march 2002

21-22 but I only squatted for 6-8 months prior. Barely ever squatted before that.
I was a freshman when I could squat 315 to parallel, it was one the most exciting things that happen to me freshman year.

25 so just recently. I was actually squatting 225 in the gym, and got some tips one day about squatting and went p to 385
we forge our bodies in the fire of our will
22, after squatting for about 6 months.
Still find it very hard to believe some of you did it at 15, but hey..
I was 15 years old i weighed 185 pounds i squatted 315x7 times but i also could bench 225x7... I was on creatine and protein tho and had began lifting in 7th grade growing up i had a lot of people push me to lift
this thread makes me sad.
I was 30.
To be fair, I didn't start lifting seriously till I was 29.
I was 18. 5' 6" and 132 lbs... Hit 365 lbs in competition. My range of motion was what, 6 inches?
I dont know...i'll let you know when I do it. You should have an option for never!

did it last month just tried 405 squat. good thing i had a squat rack.
Well, seeing how 90% of kids squat, the question should be when, if ever, did it occur to a reasonable depth.
