    Post trying to figure out where i am at in the food chain

    Hey guys, i am 15, i weigh 227 lbs can deadlift 405, squat 315, and bench 175 after 3 years of athletics and trying to get in shape. I wanted to get some opinions on my strength in the grand scheme of things. Would I be considered an elite or advanced lifter/athlete for my age and weight class? (not to brag but i can run a sub 18 minute 5k) :P

    Sure, overall you are probably doing well for a 15yo.
    Given that this is a powerlifting thread all i can say is: train the big three, sign up, and compete! I think you'll love it! Of course we care about where we are in relation to others, but the most important is training to be healthier for yourself.
    It's never too late!

    For your age ya those lifts aren't bad.
    But the sub 18 minute 5k is amazing. But it's hard to believe you run under a 6 minute mile at 227. It's kind of unbelievable. I have to call BS on it sorry.

    I wasn't going to go there but yeah very sus.... also if he weighs that much and is that lean I'd think his bench would be higher... but still want to encourage OP to get out there and not worry about rack and stacking himself.

    Also SmokinHawk... damn! Good numbers!!!
