Looking thorugh avatars and PB's and I often see ups and downs in Benching and Squat between different members, but one thing seems to be fairly consistent. Everyone seems to have a 200kg+ deadlift. A large proportion of those are over 250kg. How come people with relatively small benches and squats still manage to easily pull over 200kg?

In answer to your question, I dont know LOL

But for the majority, DL is their biggest lift. Even more so if they are unequipped lifter

equipment? relatively big squat and bench may mean they are lifting equipped? Also, Many guys on here are strongmen, and tend not to train squat/bench as much as deadlift

I personally think it takes longer to develop your squat than a decent deadlift. To some extent the bench. There is obviously tremendous variation in this.

You think this is a technique issue Iain? Confidence under the bar??

Technical issues aside, I disagree. I think legs respond better to training than backs do and can handle a lot more work.

If you fail a deadlift its safe, if you fail a squat you may get squashed. Same with bench. So I think confidence may come in to it a bit. Plus a squat is a 2 part exercise. Once you've pulled a deadlift you can pretty much drop it down (under control)

But a deadlift is (should be) a LOT of legs.

I deadlifted a lot less than 200kg when I started posting here.

In fact my top deadlift was 122.5kg when I stated posting here back at the end of 2007. My top deadlift is now 212.5kg. Yay for progress. Happy

legs maybe, but form for deadlift comes quicker for most than form for squat

Sumo dead lift is a LOT of legs. Convo dead lift is definitely back-dominant. Weightlifters seem to be able to get more legs into a convo dead lift than most (flexibility).
