    What is the average weight for Squat and Deadlifts?

    For an 19 year old male?

    I want to know if my 100 lbs squat (I think I could go heavier but I have no rack) and my 130 lbs deadlift is making any difference at all?

    if that is ur max .. then keep working at it .. deadlift numbers should rise quickly .. same with squat .. im 29 .. reently started lifting and do a 230ish dead and 135 squat for now .. never worked legs before .. but it should jump up pretty quick .. juts make sure u have good form

    no such figure exists. at most you will find some 'standards' set by different organizations.

    but who cares. do what YOU can do, because that's the only number that matters.

    to compare to jetjaguar, i'm 5'9", 29, 190lbs, 22% bodyfat, and I squat 185lbs for 6 reps, and did 215lbs deadlift for 4 reps the other day but my form was not good on that poundage.

    Thorough_bred ... there is no magic number of pounds you should be lifting. The most important thing in any lift is FORM, especially when it comes to deads and squats. Get your form perfect, then gradually increase your weight. It's not how much you lift that matters, it's how you lift it. Of course I am not suggesting that you shouldn't lift heavy weights, but if it compromises your form, it's not doing you any good. Practice on form and the increase in weight will come. Good luck with your goals.

    ACTUALLY... sorry to argue malkore... you're still my hero, but there IS such a figure. However, they do not measure by your AGE, but by your WEIGHT.

    I have found this page on the greatest weight training website ever:
    http://exrx.net. I friggin love that site.

    ANyways back on topic, yea they have Weightlifting Performance Standards for every super duper excellent compound exercises, such as squats, deadlifts, benchpress... etc. It is on this link: http://exrx.net/Testing/WeightLiftin...hStandards.htm

    For deadlifts, just measure your weight and see where you fit within the standard. Untrained, Novice, Elite... watever. I bet superman is like on God-like or something. Too bad that class doesn't exist.

    For example, for malkore, according to his weight, he is somewhere between "untrained" and "novice". CRAZY!

    I am at 132 lbs, and I deadlift 170 on my last set, so i am assuming i could probably max lift 190. I am just below Novice... and between Untrained.

    These stats are friggin ridiculous. But still, they are accurate. So wahtevahhhhh yoo!! PEACE

    Azn,

    No, we're actually agreeing. Those are the standards they list. Other organizations will have different standards, as well as other countries having completely different guildlines based on their health ministries/secretarys, etc.

    The key word in the page you list is "reasonably expected" performance. So they are still 'just estimates we pulled out of our butts after looking at the mathematical averages out of a few hundred athletes'.

    Not to say they are bad/unreasonable estimates, but still, just estimates.

    I need to buy a rack that I could get under...I KNOW I could squat more than 100 lbs but I cannot do it properly without a rack, yesterday I tried carrying 130 lbs over my head and I almost seriously injured my self...one things for sure I aint gonna try doing that again, according to that site Azn Dragon posted I should be squating 200 lbs, give me a rack and a couple of months lol.

    Well I am 5'10 and 168 lbs and have been lifting PROPERLY for about 2 months, I guess I wouldnt be considered as Untrained lol.

    I really think I need some sort of "boost", seriously thinking about taking Creatine.

    You definatley don't need creatine to help get your numbers up, just keep working hard and keep your diet and lifestyle catered towards your goals. Creatine can help a bit though.

    As for the 'average', I never really liked those estimates, they're too broad. Most of them are based sole upon gender, height and weight only. People's frames, bodyfat and muscle mass differ too much.

    I agree with malkore, what matters it what you can do, just set goals for yourself and do your best to reach them, you don't have to pay attention to other's numbers.

    I think you should worry less about the numbers and consentrate on improving the form of your lifts first. The weight will come. I started squatting with 65lbs 7 months ago and I now squat 225lbs for 2 sets of 8 reps. My max deadlift so far is 205lbs the last time I checked. Focus on your weakest areas and the lifts will come up. Everyone starts some where so don't worry about what everyone else lifts and worry more about yourself.

    Is it possible to join a gym?

    You could also try barbell hack squats, that's what I do if I'm working out at home. The form is tricky at first, but once you get it down they get pretty tough.

    For squat take your weight and multiply it by 1.5. Thats what you should be squatting.
