Well, let me start by explaining my body type a little bit since I feel it could have something to do with the major difference in squat/deadlift weight.
I’m pretty long and lean. Long limbs (72’ wingspan at 5’9). My legs are long and lean… if I were to not work them out they would be pretty damn thin. I have a small waste and core as well. I’m about 156lbs.
I started with squats today and my best was 200lbs for 3 reps, and that was difficult. I then went on to lunges.
I did Romanian Deadlifts after this with 225lbs for 8 reps without much trouble at all. I’ve deadlifted 315lbs before as well… and that was AFTER a 5x5 workout.
I can even bench more than I squat with a best of 230lbs for 4 reps.
I work my squat more than my deadlift. I had just done 12 weeks of Starr’s 5x5, which calls for squatting 3x a week. I am now doing WS4SB 3.
Anyone else have this problem? Is it even a problem to be so uneven? Should this even out in time?
The reason I’m concerned is I want to some powerlifting competitions in the future. If my squat continues to blow, I’ll never make good totals.
