Thanks for the link. It's good to have something to measure against.

Awesome. I also find it helpful to show what we're capable of. I want those advanced numbers. hahaha.

I consider myself an "intermediate" and by this chart I am an intermediate in the bench press and inbetween Novice & Intermediate on all others.
Thanks!

If you're building strength and making progress, you're probably on a good program. I find the tables below to be a decent barometer. Thought I'd share ...
