Squated yesterday hit 205 for my last set.
135x10 (warmup )
I have a goal. I turn 16 in March, You think its possible for me to hit 300 by then? Im really intent on doing this. Ive been bulking like a maniac and I dont care if I get fat, cuz Ill just cut back down.
How long does it take for someone (usually) to gain 100lbs in squat weight?
Is that a reasonable goal?

Age 16-17 (hopefully!) 170lbs
Yes. Also, depending on your squatting style, improving your technique can make a huge difference in the weight you can handle. You're growing anyway, so just keep squatting.
Yes. With great technique you can do it. Your first 100lb improvement always comes faster then the next though. For me its always a mental thing, a new pr specially for squats is a big mental hurdle.

Lower the reps if your working to a Max single. And increase the weights more then 10lbs for your working sets
hes talking about 300x1 right?

I took my squat from 405x2 to 495x4 in a matter of 2 months while eating like a starving billy goat (eating everything in sight... oh well.... it was supposed to funny)
