In the thread, “my deadlift is a disaster”, I noticed that there were posters that questioned the OP’s squat numbers in relation to their deadlift numbers. Here are my numbers:
Back squat: 255
Front squat: 230
Overhead press: 135
Bench press 200
Power Clean: 165
I’ve been lifting for 6 months now and my starting numbers were:
Back squat: 115
Front squat: 135
Overhead press: 85
Bench press: 115
Power Clean: 105
All of these are 3 sets of 5 reps except for the front squat, the power clean and the clean. Those are 5 sets of 3 reps. All of the numbers I posted are my working weights. I don’t have a 1RM since I’ve never tried for it. I add about 5 lbs to the bar everytime, except for the overhead press in which I can only add 2.5 lbs to the bar.
My workout is like this:
Monday: squats (1st week - front squat, next week - back squat)
Thursday: press (1st week - bench press, next week - overhead press)
Friday: olympic lifts (1st week - cleans, next week - snatch)
My question is, should my squat numbers be higher because of my deadlift? Should I work on squats more? Or should I stay on my current path since I am putting more weight on the bar everytime I lift?
Thanka for all of the advice and critiques. Any help is greatly appreciated.
