I’m looking for some advice. My squat seems to be lagging behind my other lifts i.e. dead lift and bench press. I am looking for advice on how to improve this.
A little back ground. Body weight: 83kg/182.6lbs
I am training for functional hypertrophy.
I do a 4 day upper lower split after spending a year on full body workout. I am not totally new to training as have trained, all be it badly in the past.
My work consists of
upper1: Bench, weighted chin ups, BOR and over head press
Lower1: Back squat, sldl, and secondary quad e.g. leg press.
Upper 2: Weighted dips, seated dumbell press, weight chins and BOR
Lower 2: Dead lift sumo/conventional, front squats, some core planks and ab rollout.
I lift 5x5 increasing the weight each set: i.e. Bench today 65kg x 5, 80kg x 5, 85kg x 5, 90kg x 3, 90kg x3, and 97.5kg x2.
My current lifts are dead lift pr: 160kg x 1
Back squat pr: 100kg x 1
Bench 97.5kg x 2 (train on my own scared of 1rm)
When I see people numbers on forums their squat seems a lot closer to their dead lift. Can anybody see anything about my training that would hold back this back? Or does anybody know good ways to increase my squat other than how I train. Any advice appreciated.
