POLL - What is your DL/BW ratio?

I just posed a question on my blog about the ratio of readers' 1RM deadlifts versus their bodyweights. This is a very casual survey question. No distinguish between beginners or advanced. Just a fun poll.

WFS http://trinitytraining.blogspot.com/
(The poll is in the right column)

Thanks for taking the time to vote. I'll post/reply the results next month.

Before it gets asked (you know it will!)------a little math help.... take your 1RM DL and divide by your BW. For example, my DL=485, my BW=230, my ratio=2.1, so I voted for "2xBW."

Voted! 2.25 for me, although it might be 2.5 tonight, I'm going for a new PR.
