Deadlift : Bench : Squat

Hey guys... could u tell me the weights u guys lift for deadlift, bench and squat.
I wanna know what ratio of weight i should be lifting. Cuz right now im 175 deadlift, 180 bench, and 160 squat (175:180:160)
I started deadlifts and squat lately, so im building up, but i wanna know the ideal ratio

    i believe different ppl will advance higher in different lifts...just go as heavy as u can, and advance as much u can in each individual lift...

    YIB is correct - The amount you can move in each of these individual lifts is based on a number of independant factors. The is no such thing as an 'ideal ratio'. A good example: the longer your arms, the more you will be able to deadlift, but the less you will be able to bench, assuming your arms are normally proportioned. At best, you can construct guestimates that are potentially widely innaccurate - If you aren't too worried about the science bit and are just looking for something approximate to aim for, I would say that you should be looking at about 3:2:3.

    Personally, I'm on 440:276:484, which is pretty close to that ratio. Bench is comparitively weak, but not by much.

    Depending on the lengths of your limbs and torso it can vary a great deal. But I've read that a reasonable ratio for someone of average proportions (whatever that is) for DL:Squat:Bench = 5:4:3

    If your short and squat, your deadlift will be about the same as your squat, and your bench is likley to be high, and visa versa.

    Without equipment, a person should always be able to deadlift about what they squat or more. I've never heard of anything else if they person was goin full depth.
