Chest and Back strength ratio

  1. Chest and Back strength ratio


    Does anyone know the preferred ratio for bench and row?

    Is it listed here as trunk?

    Based on what it says for shoulder flexion/ extension and shoulder IR/ER, I think you can assume that pull to push is 1:1. But, since most people have a forward shoulder deviation because everyone is bench crazy, I usually reccomend something more like 3:2 pull to push.
