I ask because (1) I could do 140kg a few (4-5) inches above parallel but only 130kg at parallel and (2) I often see people do 140kg and 160kg for 10-12 reps at anywhere between 1/2 and 3/4 and wonder what this would convert to.
In theory, it would be impossible to ascertain a figure for a parallel squat based on either a 1/2 or 1/4 squat, mainly because the body would be recruiting the muscles differently meaning that a person could be weaker further down in the hole but as to how much weaker, that wouldn't be quantifiable. Leverage, joint flexibility, unfamiliar movement pattern at that depth, the sheer determination to get out of the hole...along with a whole host of other variables would exist.
