I found this article on t-nation. Just wondering what your thoughts where on the table about half way down the page. I personally think that those numbers are a little bit high.
I actually think some of those are a little low, but it's fine.
A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook

i suppose the x bodyweight levels are ok, but i agree with sensei - the numbers seem a little low to me, though thats just an opinion.
They seem right for the average gym. Of course they would be low for competitve pling.

i knew you were a beast but not that kinda of a beast that eats grown men and children.. lilmase
thanks guys, guess i still have a ways to go. Also i figured i would ask it here instead of creating a new thread, but what is the main difference between a romanian deadlift and a deadlift? In the romanian deadlift you sink your hips more before the pull right?

ha, I remember reading that a while ago and thinking it seemed pretty heavy, now I think it's a little light...
Well using that chart it looks like this for me..
Squat - Sucks
Bench - Decent
DL - Good
I think the numbers seem right for the average gym-goer. They are probably a little low for powerlifting gyms, but I've been to several gyms and those seem like decent numbers for the average person. I fall in the great category on the big three, so thats good.
