    so my current 5 rep maxes are

    flat bb bench : 170x5

    squat ("ass to grass") 185x5

    deadlift : 265x5



    yeah yeah im weak, but is something wrong here? are my lifts not as proportional as they should be?

    looks fine, probly could do more weight on the squat if you werent going ass to grass.
    deadlift and squat similar numbers to me but my bench is horrid.

    If it is more than what they were the last week and the week before that then nothing is wrong at all.

    Remember, if you have not been squatting for very long but you have been doing the bench for awhile it will take your legs some time to get trained up to a proportionate level with your bench.

    well its just personal preference. nothing against it. I have better ways of getting my hamstrings.

    and in the posters case most people compare regular squats vs bench vs dead, not full squat vs bench vs deads.
