Based on the ExRx standards, I'm now past "intermediate" lifter status and barely on my way toward "advanced". It's silly to set a goal without a time frame, but I have done just that. I want my combined poundage of the big three lifts (deadlift, squat, bench press) to be over 1000 pounds. Based on my current one-rep maxes (1RM), I'll probably hit 1000 with the following breakdown:
  • Deadlift: 400 pounds
  • Squat: 350 pounds
  • Bench press: 250 pounds
For reference, I'm currently at:
  • Deadlift: 340 pounds
  • Squat: 300 pounds
  • Bench press: 210 pounds
A combined total of 850 ain't bad, especially when my total was around 550 less than six months ago.
