Lunge to Squat Strength Ratio?

What does everyone think is a ‘normal’ or average lunge (knee scraping the floor) and a raw, below parallel back squat ratio?

Don’t think there is a standard ratio, most would agree lunges don’t have much carry over I think.

what?

I think he means like if you can lunge 135 on your back, you can squat 3x that or whatever (just an example)

Consider who asked the question.

Why would such a ratio be relevant?

It’s not relevant .

So what should be my seated unilateral calf raise with a 20 second squeeze and 20 second stretch to deadlift ratio be?

It should be 32.6950483965% of your deadlift
.

Barbell lunge should be 70% of your squat max.

I’ve heard the back squat should be 100 pounds higher. Obviously these figures could be subject to change according to how much one squats.

Honestly I just made that up based on my own lifts. But it’s something to shoot for either by increasing lunge weight or increasing squat weight.
