Updated to here.

Vegan Aspirant - I didn't update your deadlift because the previous lift at lower weight but higher reps was actually a stronger lift.

James - nice pulling! Only 6 more kilos and you beat MF to the top of the table!

How come pretty much everyone can DL more than squat? Is it just that you have more upper body strength than lower? To me squatting (even though it''s not an Olympic) is significantly easier thanDL. My technique sucks in DL, but stiff leg DL is more manageable for me- but STILL I have more trouble with it than squat.

Vegan Aspirant - I'm sure it has to do with leverages. Most people have leverages that favor the body position in a deadlift. There are some that can squat more than deadlift, but most cannot.

Welcome to the board, BnB!

My squats are definitely held back by my back being weaker than my quads/glutes. I also get a lot more nervous with weight on my back than I do just pulling, so I'm more likely to go heavier with a DL than I am with a squat because I train alone and never have a spotter. I'm also just finding that I really, really like to deadlift. If I do a leg press, though, I can get those numbers way further up. Just doesn't translate to the squat as much as I'd like. Oh well, safety first!

Just remembered, though, my squats were up to 6x130lbs yesterday, so I think that roughly translates to a 150 1RM? Can I get an update?
