Re: What is your #1 strength training question?

My deadlift sucks giant hairy monkey balls. Especially in relation to my squat.

My thought behind this is two fold. I am a high bar quad dominant squatter so maybe my hamstrings and lower back are under developed. Second, I think my arms are fairly short so I might have bad leverages for the deadlift.

What proportions does the sumo style best suit? Should I try this or do you think I'm just not putting enough work into getting weak areas up?

BW = 185
HT = 5'9"
back squat = 425
deadlift = 380 - 405 depending on how I feel that day.

I know it's not a lot of information to go on, but thanks for any advice.
