Heavier bench than deadlift? Am I reading that right?

Equipped lifting, seemingly multi ply.

Hence squat is 300 lbs higher than dead

I never understood even raw why the top guys squat like 200lbs more than they deadlift.

All in the wraps?
Most of us deadlift more than we squat.

@Rand I used to squat more than I deadlift just because of how I trained. I think more people are focused on massive squat numbers nowadays than they are deadlift.

It's because squat suits are more evolved than deadlift suits.

Rand mentioned raw guys as well. In fact, though not to the extent he is talking about, your squat is higher than your dead. What is the reason behind it for you?

Just curious... Does it matter what lifts are bigger than the others?

Like melonochev or however you spell it. Or the other Russian with the jerry curl, Zamir something or other, that just set another squat record

They both squat in the 1000s with wraps and dead lift 800s seems odd.

Or chad weasly smith squats 950 but best dead is 800ish

It must be a body weight thing... Those guys are all 275 or more

Rorh squats more than he deads also.

IDK, though. Maybe it's just more fun to squat? I think so. Or is there some mechanical advantage where there is more raw potential for the body to squat compared to deadlift?

I don't care much for the equipped lifting. I mean, those guys are animals for sure, but unequipped is where it's at. That saying "if you didn't lift it raw, you didn't lift it."

Tons of people squat more than they pull. Look at Eric lilliebridge. I just suck at dead a lol and was born for squats. I might never see a 700lb pull or if I do it will take crazy work to get there. But 700 squat could happen with a peak and no injuries.

I think the mechaninal afvantage goes to the deadlifts since more muscle group are engaged significantly. Tough it is much easier on the body to have high frequency/ more volume on squats which could lead to more gainzzzz?

dont think so.
it's because you can pick a tighter squat than deadlift suit because on squats you can pick a very tight suit and let the weight press you down to parallel but on deads you have to bring your hips down by your own so a deadlift suit can't be that tight
just my personal experience
