I don't think there's any ratio. These still are two quite different movements. I wouldn't guess anything. I haven't been on meets yet, but I'll say what the expert's say. I would hit my opener Deadlift two or three weeks before the meet. Build up to your opening single. Louie Simmons has said that your opener should be a weigth you can 3RM when Louie himself comes to wake you up at nigth to lift that damn weigth. So build to a relatively heavy single, a weigth you could do triples with.
That would be my strategy, but I'd love to hear Kenny C's thougths about this.
Well there has to be some ratio, some ration between squat and deadlift and some ration between powerclean and deadlift. The ratio must be there or there is no carry over in training. That's just simple logic. Near as I can tell looking at my training logs my squat/deadlift ratio is 4/5. It may be far to early for me to determine what my PC/DL ratio is.
Yeah sure, there always is a ratio. That's logical. But does it actually correlate and work repeatedly? Power clean is a very technical exercise, with a whole lot of aspects that are not needed in deadlifting. It also reguires different kind of muscle activation and movement patterns.
Deadlifts and squats don't have a correlating simple stated ratio either. Some people deadlift more than they squat. If you train your deadlift and not your squat, the ratio will change and vice versa. If you are weak from lower back, grip or hamstrings, you might have a strong squat but a weak deadlift.
It's not simple. Force production patterns have a correlation. But exercises? There might be some. Having a high power clean migth indicate that you have a high deadlift and a high vertical jump. But there are too many factors to consider before making a ratio in my opinion.
