    Default Novice or intermediate in squat ?

    Hello I hope you are well. I appreciate all the data from this page. And I have a question about my relative strength to the squat ? My weight is 149 pounds and my height is 5,4 feet (165 cm) and 30 years old . I can squat 303 pounds for one rep max. Am I novice or intermediate?

    I'd guess novice, but as said above that's not how it works. Buy the practical principles if programing book. I bet advanced novice or just novice will hit home to your issues.

    Yes I read the book and my progression as novice it's not stop in 303 pounds. But after that I made a mistake and use big jumps too early and stuck. But I wonder the two times bodyweight squat for 1 rep is novice compare to the average man?

    Based on every character in your response except for the numbers, you are a novice.

    Your level of training advancement has nothing to do with your strength level. READ THE BOOK.

    How much weight must lift to the squat for considering as advance level for adult male with 67 kg bodyweight ? Thanks for response.

    You didn't read the book, or my previous response.

    What they are saying is being a novice intermediate and advanced is subjective to the individual. Time of recovery and rate of progress tells where you fall as a novice to advanced. Read the grey book and read it slow. In short a 500 pound squat maybe ones advanced lifts while to a gifted guy it could be in their novice phase.

    I read it, the book describes in great detail all the basic exercises. But I can't find numbers whose represent strength levels.
