    ideally, should your squat and d/l 1RM be the same/close to the same. or should the DL be significantly greater than your squat? :hsd:

    from the numbers ive seen, usually the DL is about 10-20% greater than the squat.
    but numbers dont scale down well to newbies, not saying you are, but like i DL 260ish and squat 200.

    depends on your weight...lighter lifters tend to have their deadlift approach their squat weight but no matter what your squat should always be higher. The heavier you are the lower your deadlift will be in comparisson to your squat but i doubt thats something you need to worry about

    that makes no sense. how can you say that when its a matter of fact that many people do deadlift more than they squat?
