    The way Starting Strength uses these terms is solely about rate of ability to progress, not about strength levels.

    The only criterion that distinguishes between novice/intermediate/advanced:

    How often can the trainee add weight to the bar?

    Novices can add weight every 48-72 hours. Intermediates every week or so. Advanced means adding weight in longer periods (months).

    I understand. I was just wondering if there is some measure or basis for determining through performance whether someone is a beginner or advanced and not just from a practitioner's experience?

    If I train as hard as possible and don't use deload. I can't add weight every 48-72 hours in the exercises. But every week I can. But I wonder why it's not exist a way to represent the level of a person according to his performance. In general view.

    I suspect the OP may be ESL. I'll give him the benefit of the doubt.

    It's likely time for you, the OP, to get a good coach. If you are confused of begin novice and intermediate then you are likely a novice with many gains left on the table. My recommendation is to go here;
    Coaching | Starting Strength

    and find your self a good coach that can help you navigate the second half of your novice progression and collect that gains that are available to you.

    I hooked up with a SSC when NLP got hard and he kept me progressing months past what I thought was the end. In my opinion, if you truly want to do the program, you need to get someone with some experience to guide you through the later parts. You are welcome to try and figure it out yourself, but getting a coach to walk you through it is much easier.
