I can't do back squats because of a serious shoulder impingement from when I was 14 so I was just wondering, what would be a good ratio to shoot for for front squats so that I can get to theoretically 360 for back squat. I realize there is no magic number to plug in, but just from a mental standpoint front squatting 360 at 180 seems quite a bit harder than back squatting it.
I'm 21 years old, 5'11", 180 lbs. And am trying to get to the 1000 lb club by Christmas, as well as having a 1.5, 2, and 2.5 body weight ratio for those 3 exercises. Currently Bench 275, deadlift 435 and front squat 245 ATG. I only started squatting a month ago because I just never decided to do front squats out of the sheer frustration of not being able to do back squats with my shoulder. My squat is only so good because I played basketball my whole life including 2 years of university varsity ball.
Thanks in advance!
PS. I'm also a Kinesiology student at university and am pretty knowledgeable so feel free to add me as a friend (I'm new to the site) if you want to discuss anything regarding, energy systems, muscle systems and adaptation those are my strong suits!
