So you mean a chimp weigh 50lbs and can squat only 25 lbs and a human weigh 150 lbs and can squat 150 lbs, thus the conclusion that a chimp has a higher weight to strength ratio (two) than a human being (only one)? And the higher the ratio, the less impressive?
From a guy who has a Physics master's degree?
"Weight/Strength". The concept is borrowed from Physics where it's more generally called "Specific Strength" and the SI Unit is [(N/m2)/(kg/m3)] or more commonly [N·m/kg]
