Sitting here waiting for my meeting I was thinking over this weeks training and got a little perturbed with myself. Everything is progressing nicely and I know I am on track for my goals this year. BUT man does it make me nuts that my BS is so far off my DL. This week my last set of BS was 265 X 1 and my last set on DL was 345 X 4. I know some people are built to squat and some to DL still bugs the crap out of me.

I am absolutely convinced that it is a mental problem with the squat.

End rant!

To each their own. I feel like my DL and SQ are way too close to each other, that my DL should be much bigger.

Shrug. At least both are steadily getting stronger!

Your squat & DL should not be very close to each other, for most people not using PL gear... obviously there are exceptions.

I feel ya, my squat has never been good but DL is the same as yours pretty much. But I guess as you said some are built to squat others to Deadlift.
