I'm trying to monitor my improvements and have been tracking this for a while, and started thinking if there is a general ratio for weightlifters.
So here it is. My stats are as the footnote. I currently weigh 195lbs.
Squat to bodyweight ratio: 1.18:1 for 6 reps
Deadlift to bodyweight ratio: 1.35:1 9 reps
Bench to bodyweight ratio: 1.13:1 for 4 reps
I'm going to try for my 1RM in 2 weeks, and will see how that compares to the above. But I wonder if there is a standard ratio for most people?
To work it out, simply take your weight you lift at and divide it by your bodyweight.
