Really ? Because according to Mark Rippetoe's chart i am
(Link is Work and family safe)
I weigh 170 so lets see
-My Bench Press is between intermediate and advanced
-My Shoulder Press is between Intermediate and advanced, much closer to intermediate though
- My Squat is Novice, but close to intermediate, as i noted.
- My deadlift is Intermediate
- And my power clean is novice but close to intermediate
Im pretty sure on average that makes me an Intermediate lifter, unless you have any evidence to support the idea that Mark Rippetoe is wrong.
