    Yeah, I find that the constant heavy squatting and pulling (albeit with lighter weights) of Olympic weightlifting really do help the deadlift. My max was about 200kg when I started doing more heavy...

    I don't agree with this tip. Thats how powerlifters squat and thats fair enough but for most average people that will feel like a very unnatural movement.

    There is no magic line that your body draws whereby if knees go past toes then something bad happens. That is the natural way for humans to go down into a deep squat: knees DO go past toes.
