Tall & Strong

What are good numbers for tall lifters around 180 or so pounds?

I think it might be better to compare your weights on the power lifts with someone your height and weight.

So 6’+ and around 180, what would you consider good numbers?

I would actually compare numbers by years of experience. I’m tall as hell but probably no where near as strong as someone my hieght who’s been workout out for 10+ years. But for the fuck of it, my lifts:
These are all 1RM’s.
Bench: 325
Squat: 410 or 405 (forgot, sorry)
Deadlift: 475

For relative strength, someone posted this site one time:

I realize that doesn’t address your height question, however.

im 6 foot even

bench-225
deadlift-315
squat-315

I’m 6’ 3" 16 and 200lbs

Bench-245
Squat-375
Dead-405
Power Clean-255

Unless you’re some sort of phenom or you have great mechanics for some specific lift (a kid I lift with is 5’10 177 lbs and dls 545, for example) I wouldn’t consider any numbers that a 6’ 180 lber could put up impressive. I’m 6’ 200 lbs and my numbers still suck, I’m hoping once I get to around 240 they’ll be decent.

I am 6-5. At my heaviest bodyweight, around 280, my numbers were:
Bench - 405
Squat - 350 (yes, I know, it sucks!)
Deadlift - 500

6’2", 210# @ ~13%BF

Bench: 260
Squat: 375
Dead: 395

Yes, my numbers are kind of pathetic.
