You're missing my point.

There is no ideal ratio/comparison and no effort should be made to try and downplay one strength to balance out another. Getting strong in everything is the goal, you may find with some balanced training that you have one lift which shoots ahead and that's fine.

Of all the great lifters and lifts in history; such as Young's Bench, Gant's Deadlift very few of them were remembered because of their perfectly balanced ratio of lifts!
