your deadlift is way disproportional to your bench.

you didn't do a 450 deadlift at 221 lbs bodyweight, but you "smoked" a

Very unlike you, Whit. Standard lower-body powerlifter thinking. I
realize that powerlifting scoring favors that. But it ignores that
some people have better upper body strength, while others have better
lower body strength.

i am aware of that. i didn't say it was necessarily training related.

i said it was disproportional. it IS disproportional, in relation to a
reasonable group of comparison - powerlifters, since they compete in bench
and dead (and squat)

it's not disproportional for many, but it's disproportional vis a visw
powerlifting, or push-pull meets.


Look at the record lifts in most powerlifting associations. The best
totals, deadlift, and squat are frequently held by the same person,
but that person almost never has the best bench press.
