Do you think I could squat 1.5x my bodyweight?

Hi,

I have limited amount of weights at home...
so I normally do single leg exercises like 1 leg squat (or pistol squat) and bulgarian split squat etc.
I just wanted to know if you guys think I could squat 1.5x my bodyweight? ( I need this information for this program, and if i had access to gym I would've checked there, but i don't so I'm asking on adarqui.org (: )
Anyway, I weigh 60kg,
I can pistol squat with about 25-30 KG weight (with assists - grabbing onto bar etc) for about 5-8 reps.
And i can do BSS with 48KG for about 10-11 reps.

Do you guys think I could squat 1.5x my bodyweight? And for extra question, any thoughts/guesses on how much my 1rep max could be?

Thank you!

Hmm, no real way to tell from those stats as they're both unilateral exercises. BSS @ 48kgs is pretty good.

what acole said.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

- Avishek

sunday: long very easy run 80+ mins @ 5:40+ (14+ km)
monday: strength/cross training
tuesday: extensive tempo (7 km) OR fartlek (mostly easy pace with mix of strides, hills, long tempo) 45 mins (8+ km)
wednesday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km)
thursday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km), strength/cross-training
friday: rest
saturday: short tempo 6-8x500 @ sub-4:00 (7 km)

strength would be:
- hops 2x10
- box jumps or ME SVJ 2x5
- squats 3x6-8 or weighted BSS/lunges 3x10/leg
- RDL/hypers 2x10-12 or SLRDL 2x10-12/leg
- upper push myo-reps or sets to technical failure
- upper pull myo-reps or sets to technical failure
- leg raises, holds, pallof presses

I guess you could. I can squat 115kgx5 (smith machine at 73kg bodyweight) and I´m doing only 40kgx6 on split squats
current vertical: 32.5 inches
longterm goal: 35 inches
shortterm goal 120kgx5 squat
squat: 5x105kg
size: 6,1 weight: 77kg
