Anyone know where i can find this lifting routine and the theories behind it? I did a search and couldn't find anything in this forum.

probably because you should search for 'west side' instead

Something struck me in the first paragraph of that article. They have 24 lifters who can squat 800+ but only 6 members that can deadlift 800+....

I guess because most powerlifters are short?

No, it's because they don't train the deadlift much. Also, they focus a lot on training in equipment and equipment doesn't lend itself to much improvement in the deadlift like it does the squat and bench.

Also, the world record squat is 1142 pounds. The world record deadlift is 932 or 933 (I can't remember which). There are a lot of 800 pound squatters, much fewer 800 pound deadlifters in the world.

Being short can help you in the deadlift as long as your arms are short.
