Good lifting numbers

Of course we see the games level athletes hitting some lifting amazing numbers. But I was curious what would good numbers be for a average cross Fitter (squat,deadlift, press,snatch, clean)? Those of us that just go to the box or garage everyday and don't necessarily do multiple sessions a day or anything. I know this will vary depending on body weight etc.

I know, right?? I love the Crossfit Seattle spreadsheet. They've revamped it and it is a pretty cool tool to use. But yes, it can be disheartening to see the Froning's and Bailey's of the world CRUSH serious weight, you just have to be honest with yourself and take it as it comes. I remember my first bodyweight clean. That's something most people on this board can do pretty easily, but for me it was a big accomplishment! I'd check out that Crossfit Seattle level 1, 2, 3, 4 and see where you fall!

Re: Good lifting numbers

Good lifting numbers..

yeh - you are only as good as your last lift, everything else is history!

When I was in my 20's I hit some decent numbers weighing in at 177lb BW
Bench 297
Squat 429
deadlift 528

Are these relevant today no (some people beg to differ)... even if I did them last week it does not matter because my form goes up and down the whole time.

Plus if you think your numbers are good, who else is to say they are not good numbers... feel good about what you can achieve, no matter when or where.

With those numbers you are not average dude ! Nice. What is your occupation, if I may ask ? It seems real average joes like me are working a desk job, 10+ hrs a day and all the 300-looking guys have more flexibility during the day.
