Weightlifting standards - where do you fall?
What are your thoughts regarding these standards? And where do you fall?

Weightlifting Performance Standards

For most part, my numbers fall on the low end of the intermediate range, which seems about right, except for press where I just clear the "advanced" numbers. The biggest shocker for me is the powercleans. The table makes me feel ridiculously weak for this lift - barely above the novice mark for a 1RM.

My OHPress is between Advanced and Elite
My Bench Press is between Intermediate and Advanced
My Squat is between Untrained and Novice (probably because it's a front squat!)
My Deadlift is a little way off Advanced
My Clean, if properly tested, would be bang on intermediate at this point

Bench Press is advanced

Press- Intermediate
Squat - Intermediate
Bench- Intermediate
Deadlift - Novice: Just shy of intermediate but that will change soon
Clean - Untrained! Just short of novice but again, that will change :biglifter:

Bench Press - somewhere between advanced and elite
Squat - between advanced and elite
Deadlift - between advanced and elite (again)

But I am definitely not nearly elite!

Between novice and intermediate, on all lifts.

Benchpress- I'm way above elite

Don't give shit about the other lifts since I only compete in bench.

Between intermediate and advanced on all lifts. Only 4lb from advanced on bench, but just over intermediate on Dead lift, which I'm in the process of changing.

Using my personal bests:

Press - Advanced
Bench - Advanced
Squat - Intermediate
Deadlift - Intermediate

Personally, I don't know how I feel about my weight and that squat requirement being intermediate. Personally, I don't feel like 300+ is intermediate.
