    What were they when you started? That's how to gauge your progress...

    You know your somewhat strong on your bench when you can at least bench your weight.

    benching your own bodyweight puts you in the average field.

    numbers look pretty good considering you lost weight during this process as well. noob gains are great to see. keep it up

    If it's his FIRST 6 months of lifting I think that is fine. How old are you? I never like max's, form is such an issue. I can squat 265 for 10 at a weight of 165, but I don't think they're the best reps. I think I could stand to go down about another 3" for a true full squat. My flexibility just sucks and I feel like I'm ripping in half.

    As long as you are MAKING progress, be happy. Genetics are different for everyone. I'm not strong in anything, but squats. It's genetic. I was doing the above after 5 weeks of squating, with 7 years off.
