My squat is very weak compared to my deadlift. I realize that they are two different lifts, but I’ve been making decent gains in my deadlift and other lifts while the squat has been the same for a while.
I have been on WS4SB for the past 4-5 months and have been making decent gains on everything but the squat soon failed to rise while the rest kept going.
Currently I’m squatting 235lb for 5, while deadlifting 345lb for 5. Hell even my bench is close to the squat at around 225lb x5. I know that they’re not the greatest numbers but look at it comparatively.
I feel like the squat is failing midway, just a little after coming out the hole. I think it might be my back/glutes that are giving out but this doesn’t make much sense to me seeing as the deadlift emphasizes those two. I tend to lean forward as more weight is loaded onto the bar. Just to let you know i squat ATG, no quarters, no bs.
I’ve been thinking of starting box squats or good mornings but thought I’d pop in for some advice first.
Thanks for the help.
