    Are my weight good from my age/weight and should I increase them?

    Hi everyone, I am 20 years old 5'9 and 131 pounds currently bulking to around 145. I started lifting weights are 2 1/2 months ago and I have seen some great results in my arms and my legs. My dumbell weight for curls and shoulder press rn is around 20 pounds for 12 reps. My ez barbell curl is around 40 on each side so 80 pounds in all for about 10 reps. My squat is 165 and my deadlift is 185. I was wondering if these numbers are pretty impressive for my stats and if I should maybe increase the weight a little especially for my bicep curls/shoulder press. Thanks!

    Have you not been progressively increasing the weight for your exercises in these 2 1/2 months that you've been working out? That's more important than impressing people on here.

    Those are impressive numbers for a 12 year old girl. For a 20 year old male, pretty weak. Whats worse is you felt asking for validation for your 20 pound dumbell lifting feats.

    I think you should follow one of the beginners programs onthe stickies. Impressive for your size is a 600 pound deadlift and a 450 pound squat.

    They're fine just focus on doing more next week. You should be progressing weekly not when internet strangers tell you its fine too and on all lifts not just some. Given your numbers on the other lifts I have a very good idea that your 80lb EZ curls are likely with very poor form. Could be wrong but it definitely stands out.
    Bench: 365
    Squat: 495
    Deadlift: 535

    You dumbbell curl 20s but can ez-bar curl 100lbs. (bar is usually 20lbs)? Unlikely you're using good form.
    I can tell time. Time cannot tell me.

    Formerly LactoseTolerant. I'm not very imaginative.
