I’ve always found that I can squat (wide stance, toes forward) much more than I can deadlift (narrow stance, toes forward). My best 5x5 squat set was done with 335lb, whereas my best deadlift set was 5x5 with 225lb.
I’ve seen some posts lately on the topic of muscular imbalances. I am contemplating as to what I should do:
1–FREEZE my squat weight at 335lb and slowly work up my deadlift.
2–LOWER my squat to 225lb and work it up simultaneously with my deadlift. (ie. I would deadlift/squat 225lb, and once I worked up my deadlift to 235lb, I would deadlift/squat 235lb)
3–Keep doing what I’m doing, which is doing both exercises independently of each other.
I’m leaning towards #2. Just interested if anyone else thinks this is a good idea, or if I’m possibly overlooking something.
