    A ratio is a relationship in quantity, amount, or size of two or more things. Are you looking at the relationship between the 1RM's of the different tests of strength that you mention?

    I am used to seeing strength in relation to a lifter's bodymass. The classical formula in which the total lifted is divided by the lifter's bodymass to the 2/3 power is a good example. Is that what you mean by strength ratio?
