Good Benchmarks Deadlift/Squat/Bench?


#1

I'm 5'5 56kg/123lbs, i have been training for roughly 2 months or so. My lifts to me seem very

good but im just wondering what some benchmark numbers are for a beginner in all 3 lifts at

123 lbs. I want to hopefully enter a powerlifting competition soon but i dont want to totally

suck and im not going unless im good.


#2

Bench 1.5xBW
Squat and DL 2xBW

those are good benchmarks


#3

thanks


#4

180(1.5x BW) bench seems a little out there though, my deadlift is basically 2x BW though


#5

I started training back in January, and I am shooting for 1x BW bench, 1.5x BW squat, and 2x BW deadlift. Those are my initial goals, which I think I can hit pretty quickly. After that, I will adjust them upwards.

It’s 162 pounds, up from 144 in December. I’m hoping to hit 180 by the end of the year, but with a little less body fat. Good luck bro!

Here are the standards for your bodyweight(165 lbs was closest for bodyweight):

Press - Adult Men
Body Weight - 165 lbs Un-trained 75 lbs, Novice 102 lbs, Intermediate 129 lbs, Advan. 153 lbs Elite 186 lbs

Bench Press - Adult Men
Body Weight 165 lbs, Un-trained 119 lbs Novice 152 lbs, Intermediate 187 lbs Advanced 255 lbs Elite 319 lbs

Squat - Adult Men
Body Weight 165 lbs Un-trained 110 lbs Novice 204 lbs Intermediate 250 lbs Advanced 342 lbs Elite 445 lbs

Deadlift - Adult Men
Body Weight 165 lbs Un-trained 137 lbs Novice 254 lbs Intermediate 293 lbs Advanced 411 lbs Elite 518 lbs

Power Clean - Adult Men
Body Weight 165 lbs Un-trained 79 lbs Novice 147 lbs Intermediate 180 lbs Advanced 246 lbs Elite 288 lbs

Hope this helps. All this did for me was show how weak I really am!

then why do i keep seeing you give advice all over this forum.


#10

Should be 2.5* for DL

2* for Squat

1.5* Bench Press

1* Military Press
or
1.5* Push Press

Though at your weight… you may try eating more - helps all your lifts !

Because I keep seeing questions going unanswered or answered incorrectly by semi-literate sarco boys. Why do you keep asking me questions when I have already announced my intention to NEVER post here again an unsolicited comment? Do you like having me around?

And why are you sarco boys just saying 1.5 X BW or 2 x BW instead of providing the information that was requested as I have done?

You should compete because you want to, not waiting for some arbitrary total. There will be people stronger and weaker.
