    I'm novice, but nearly intermediate with all of them. Which is pretty awesome for just starting out. I'll get there...

    I don't think they actually factor age into their calculations. I looked at the numbers based on my actual age of 52 and compared the results against a 24 year old and got the same thing.


    I just did the same. The percentages changed.

    If in doubt check Killustrated's strength charts which definitely factor in age in into their standards.

    That says I'm almost elite on deadlift, firmly in the advanced category for squat, and elite on bench. :shrug:

    Bench advanced (not surprising...former bench monkey)
    OHP intermediate (huh, I'd have to hit 207 to be advanced)
    Squat intermediate
    Deads intermediate

    Neither squats or deads are that much of a shock. I never worked legs when younger and it's taking time to build them up.
    However, over the past 3 years of solid lifting I think I've done alright.
    I've gone from/to:
    Squat 165/315 (and I could barely, I mean barely get 165)
    Bench 185/305 (former bench monkey so it came back rather quickly)
    OHP 105/185 (again, upper body was much stronger)
    DL 185/385 (had never, ever done DL before so....)

    It's so satisfying to get to that 200lb deadlift. That was my goal for the end of 2016 and I just got it last week. Going from 195 to 200 was a big mental jump for me though. You got this! Good luck with everything!

    Aww, thanks! And congrats on yours - that's awesome! Thus far, I have a love/hate relationship with deadlifts - so satisfying when they go well, but so SO frustrating if I'm having an off day. But yeah, cannot wait to pull 200. :D

    You're correct. I was only looking at the classification.

    Holy crap. I feel so weak, but I've just squeaked into novice. Well, I had. I have something going on now and had to stop lifting and go back to bodyweight stuff with resistance bands because my joints are not happy with me (I have psoriatic arthritis) and I wasn't recovering.

    I've been strength training two years and am slow to progress due to frequent deloads thanks to health issues and just general slowness in adapting to stimulus.

    Killustrated is more generous in terms of rankings but there's no questions that the categories are clearly differentiated by age in terms of the weight necessary to achieve each level.

    PS: I just compared the Strength Levels for my performance vs men aged 24-39 and my ratings drop 1-2 levels to Novice or Intermediate from Advanced, so I found there is a difference in their lifting standards by age; at least for me.

    Fully in intermediate status. I'll take it for only lifting for two full years. No lifting background prior to that...none in HS or College. Wish I would have taken advantage of those puberty hormones when I had that chance LOL.

    Only about 20lbs away from advanced for squat and DL, but still 50 away on bench :disappointed:

    I deal with PA among some other chit. Let me know if I can help in any way.

    25 year old female powerlifter. Lifting almost a year and a half now and started lifting as a means to lose weight. Kinda just discovered I was pretty strong. I also have a powerlifting father, former world record holder though so no one be discouraged that I'm a newbie and strong lol.

    After 2 years of lifting, I am still just a wuss by these standards. Thanks alot @nakedraygun

    Right there with ya...granted, I don't really do "heavy"...my lifting is more in support of my cycling and general health than anything.

    I'm supposed to run a good 12-15 week heavy cycle starting January and I'm not really looking forward to it...I find them boring.

    after 4 months of lifting at 35 years old I'm just in the intermediate for deadlifts and the upper novice range for bench and squat.

    I had a bunch of excuses of why my numbers weren't better all written out here but here it is. I'm improving and getting more and more confident under the bar and plan on jacking these numbers up higher next year.
