T Nation

Snatch to Deadlift Ratio


I was wondering what an average snatch to deadlift ratio is among T-Nation members. Today I power snatched bodyweight for the first time and yet can only DL around 1.75 times my bodyweight. Is this normal?


First of all stop worrying so much, just pull what you can. Second, my snatch is about 65% of my Deadlift, if that answers your Q.


personly i dont think they have much of a carry over as one would expect, obviously deadlift will be more, but the snatch relys on so much more of a exsplosive movement, plus there is no catch in a deadlift
but anyway my snatch is 30% of my deadlift, however my snatch is much below where it should be


My ratio is about 2:5.
