The best age 60+ raw natural squats I've seen in the records books were under 540 pounds. Most 500-520. I've not personally seen any age 60+ record near 600, though I am not discounting the possibility that one exists. I checked the USAPL and 100% Raw records and didn't see a natural anywhere near 600.

Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.
nah that sounds correct.

and yes, educating IM on realistic numbers is a good idea.

I understood that. I wasn't saying that everyone was going to do it or that it should be a standard.

Aim high, and you never fall short. But that's a discussion for another time.

You can never Deadlift 400 if you only believe yourself capable of 300.
