I've been doing barbell strength training for a few months. I've been doing some progression programs and trying to improve my form. After a few form checks with professionals, I am confident that my squat form is pretty decent (for a novice) as is my barbell row.
However, that means that my squat is lower than my row. As an example, today I rowed 77.5 kg (~170 lbs) for 3 sets of 6, and I could only manage to keep good form with 72.5 kg for 5 sets of 3 for my (back)squats, ATG.
I conclude (also confirmed from how it feels when squatting and deadlifting) that I have an imbalance and that my legs, i.e. quadriceps mostly, are weaker in relative terms than my back. However, if I look at the strength standards, it still seems strange that my squat for my weight level is at a beginner's level, and my row close to intermediate, even if I would say I'm probably best described as novice.
My question is, can this be possible? Can I have such a big imbalance, or does it mean I'm definitely doing something wrong somewhere? If it's just an imbalance, will that correct itself if I keep just progressively overloading, or should I take action to correct that imbalance?
For context, I'm ~87kg 188cm (that's ~191 lbs, at 6'2) male, 28 yrs old.
