Performance Standards (lifter classification)

Posted by David Hensler on

Submaximum loads may be used to estimate one rep maximum values using a One Rep Max Calculator.

Accumulated performance data is not predictive or regression derived. These performance standards should not to be confused with strength norms.

Standards are based on lifts with no assistive training gear (belt is acceptable).

Training levels used in performance standards are as follows:

Untrained

An individual who has not trained on the exercises before, but can perform them correctly.

Novice

An individual who has trained regularly for up to several months.

Intermediate

An individual who has trained regularly for up to a couple years.

Advanced

An individual who has trained multiple years.

Elite

An athlete competing in strength sports. 

Tables for classification (1RM). These are not representative of federation standards. Merely as a reference.

Squat 1RM

Bench Press 1RM

Deadlift 1RM
