Weird lifts?

You bench more incline than flat? Your dumbell press is only 5kg behind your barbell press? Your deadlift is only 10kg more than squat?

Some odd limb proportions going on I suspect. What strongman event is this..

I second this.

Either odd limb proportions or you have either

a) calculated weights wrong (I'm assuming incline is on the smith machine? And you have used the bar as 20kg?)

or b) You are not lifting properly. Not touching your chest with bar, not brining DB down low enough, deadlift form is off if it is only 10kg heavier than squat, etc

No hard feelings but your squats and deadlifts are far weaker compared to your upper body ones. Hopefully you don't suffer from CLS (chicken leg syndrome)

Your lifts are skewed massively, quite how one inclines more than flat benches is beyond me unless you do it before flat.

Your lower body is very weak compared to your upper body.

What's your routine?

A) Barbell bench press,
B) Lower back problems for deadlift
