    ratio of big lifts weight wise to one another...

    ...should they all be relatively close to each other say 50 lbs? or squat and dead closer, w/ bench a bit farther behind...

    just wondering b/c I feel the dead is my best lift followed by back squat then bench.

    Im 172 @ 7-8 percent and I've never benched more than 175 1x2 decline (i think I could do more, just never have.) I dead 275 2x8 consistently, and squat 225 atg 2x3.

    so is my bench 2 far behind, and should my dead be way ahead of my squat? or vice versa? or closer to gether, or? I guess it all depnds right.

    I was just wondering what there should be like a ratio or diff between the 3, and if so what should it be.

    What should the optimal numbers (in theory) for my weight be? I always feel more confident adding weight/upping reps etc w/ my dead as opposed to evverything else.

    i believe so 2. at the rate they are all going up if the grip is up to the challenge I hope to hit those by early next year (late feb i hope.)

    J

    edit: now that I think about it the 500 dead i can pull by feb, i hope to squat just 315 by the end of the year. bench if I can do 210 for 2x8 by dec ill be more than happy.

    Some people are just better at certain movements than others.

    You should squat and deadlift more than you bench press unless you are a 400 pound fatass with no coordination. Also, without gear I would say most people can deadlift more than they squat, but those numbers should be fairly close.

    like the almight CP has said, your bench should be less than your squat/dead however people are different with different points of attachments for muscles and differing bone lengths etc.

    it usually works bench-squat-dead however as previously stated some people are just better at certain movements than others (as an example people with long arms are better at deadlifting) so it will vary person to person.

    True true. If you look like this...



    then there is no question your deadlift is going to kickass and your bench will such balls. If you're a giant fatass with arms that are at full extension 2 and a half inches off your giant belly when you're laying down, then benching will be more your forte, heh.

    Atm my bench is bigger than my squat by a tad because ive only started seriously training my legs recently (last few months). Deadlift is more than bench though, so im hoping to get the squat higher pretty quickely in the next month or two.

    That order makes sense to me though.

    That will change quickly though. I was the same way at first because my leg training was totally lame. In a few months time my squat went up a lot.

    I've got 2 out of 3. My squat is about 150 lbs less than my DL, however.

    This is spot on for me. I'm currently around 370 bench, squat 500+ (although I've never done more than 405lbs for many reps), dead lift 500+ (again I've never pulled more than 495lbs for 4 reps). It's just not worth the injury risk for me to max these lifts out.

    Im confident thisll happen aswell. In the last 3 months ive gone from squating 80lbs to 132lbs for 4 reps. I hope that curve continues!

    I do need to do some ham-dominant exercises though. *Google...*
