Muscle Imbalances, Ratios ?

I have never really seen in depth info beyond muscle imbalances being hindering to your lifts and overall fitness due to the higher risk of injury. Are there “ideal” ratios or anything of the like for muscles? I’m not talking about miniscule muscle A B and C.

Anterior leg to posterior chain maybe? Or upper pushing vs pulling etc.

I know it’s kind of hard because most muscles aren’t directly comparable to their antagonist muscle, but is there any way to really measure if you have muscle imbalances?

This article has some suggested ratios.
