    Whats a good amount to deadlift?

    I just started deaflifting and need a goal, not sure how much someone should be able to deadlift. I am only 54kgs so nothing outrageous, and am currently benching around 70kg so whats a similar conversion in deadlifting, currently starting with 10kg+bar= 30kgs. Also would help if you post how much times your body weight you can life, ie mine is around 0.6xbw

    A good ratio if u want balance is 5:3 of ur bench. 2x is pretty impressive too. Im almost there
    No offense but u need to work on it, just start out slow and add 10 lb each session if u can

    i saw a 165lber deadlift 660. but he was a powerlifter. i think the post was in this section like 3 weeks ago.

    OP, i would say a good amount would be 2 times bodyweight.

    but as a beginner, 1.5x bodyweight is ok
