I agree with Craig. It's a little too soon to worry about the ratios. Keep plugging away. I would recommend "Starting Strength" by Mark Ripetoe. Awesome book that will help you with the slow lifts. It added pounds immediately to my back squat.

I also agree on trying the Maximum Effort Black Box. Add more heavy lifting days to your program and it will pay off. Don't be discouraged. Just work the back squat, deadlift, press, front squat, overhead squat all the time. Watch videos, read books/articles and get some footage of yourself for review.

Also do a set of tabata squats once a week.

Patience.
