The fact that you have "a couple" of girls who squat 300 pounds in your gym alone means that you must belong to a pretty exceptional gym. A very hardcore gym to say the least. What's the name of it? How much do those chicks weigh? LOL
In my opinion the majority of men cannot squat 400 or above. Most have never even tried.
Not sure how much of this was serious inquiry and how much of it was sarcasm, but I'll answer it seriously:
1. No one from IFBB. One guy used to do natural bodybuilding shows (will probably again later). He squats over 500 at 198 bw. Another used to do bodybuilding in Russia before moving to the U.S. and several girls/women who have done figure competitions.
2. The gym is exceptional and hardcore. As I mentioned, we have the highest concentration of raw elite totals in the area (and I'm bringing down the average single-handedly fml). The gym (Boss Barbell Club) is powerlifting specific. Dan Green is the owner, operator, and head coach. We have bands, chains, prowlers, sleds, a GHR, a brand new reverse hyper (it is fucking beautiful), cambered bar, SSB, buffalo bar, Okie and Texas squat/power/and deadlift bars, swiss bar, six combo racks you see at powerlifting meets, Dan's orange EFS power cage, a couple half cages, 5 oly platforms/rigs, a few deadlift platforms, 2-3 full sets of calibrated Ivanko kg plates in addition to all the iron and bumper plates in lbs, and probably a bunch of other shit I'm forgetting. The only thing we don't have is a mono, but no one there wants one.
3. The two girls who squat 300+ both compete in the 165 class (LOLSOFAT). There are also several girls who compete at 114 or 123 who squat over 200 (yw GraphicNovelty). Actually I don't think any of the girls CAN'T squat 200. I usually squat with them to minimize bar loading/unloading.
4. Yes, you're right. The majority of men cannot and will not ever squat 400+. In this sort of training environment, I hope to join the 400+ club some day.
