comment Why do I have a deadlift deficiency?
@shilov I've updated my answer with some other tips, this seems like a case where a video might be helpful though because having a dead that close to your bench is highly unusual

comment Why do I have a deadlift deficiency?
I don't want to make assumptions but sometimes I see people going halfway down on the bench and squat while on the DL there is no cheating so it may be that you only think your deadlift is low when really your other exercises are just not being done correctly

comment Barefoot Running Effective for Improving Squat?
Why do I keep getting random unexplained downvotes :(. For the next person that tries to downvote, look at the comments I asked the OP if I should delete it and he said not too, therefore I can't think of any reason other people should downvote

comment Why is “Starting Strength” the most highly regarded workout regime on the Internet?
Look you may find some studies about bench press injuring people but the fact is 99% of people do not injure themselves benching, deadlifting you are more right about but they can still be done safely. As for deloading squats I just leave you with this, do people practicing for oly lifts use safety equipment

I do not think SS is or should be recommended for everything, it is for strength gains. Also your criticisms of the lifts are incorrect, you are greatly overstating the danger of these lifts and back squats do have safe failure without equipment if you are using correct form

It would be good if you told us how your legs and back are feeling after the set so we can understand the problems you are having
