Just so, what is a good amount to squat?
You should master the basic bodyweight squatbefore you move on to loaded squats like gobletsquats and barbell back squats. Most fitness expertsand strength coaches will agree that being able to perform at least20-50 consecutive bodyweight squats with good form isa good basic standard to go by.
Additionally, is squatting your bodyweight good? According to Kawamoto, if you're "35-45 year-olds, backsquatting your bodyweight with full range of motion is anexcellent target." You can scale down (or up) from therewith age. But even a bodyweight equivalent squat canbe an ordeal, especially if you lack the flexibility and mobilityto have good form.
