    I do prefer this one however, no tables, just enter the figures, there are metric tables also if you want aswell, to see what the next level is to set a goal.


    Strength level calculator: measure ability in common exercises such as the deadlift, clean and press, bench press, squat and power clean

    Well Trofius, I tried the above calculater and I got "Better than Elite"! So the question now becomes: how accurate is this calculater?

    I put BW 74kg, Squat 200kg.

    Well it's interesting to say the least. Thank you for posting it.

    Fadi there are charts on that page aswell.

    But ex olympic weightlifter,-- umm better than elite probably fits well. I would assume that once you were elite thats it...You are probably in the top 0.1% of the population

    Thank you Mick, I totally missed those charts before. It's still interesting and I very much appreciate you putting it up. Wouldn't be nice if everything was as easy to work out as this.

    Time for bed. Good Morning Everyone.

    Interesting chart. It rates my best bench press as better than elite, yet I never lifted outside a gym ( 165kg @ 90kg)

    It also gave me a better than elite on my clean & press (102.5kg @ 90kg). My press was done in military press fashion as well.

    I think its a touch optimistic lol

    It also rates the powerclean & squat of a 17yo boy as advanced to elite, what happens when he grows up?

    Max C&P is better than elite, although he push presses

    Surely better than Elite should mean just that, not gym lifts from hacks

    Half my clientel would register Elite lifts on that. Here are a few of the BETTER THAN ELITE

    Kelly 152.5kg BP @ 85kg - Better than Elite
    Simon 240kg deadlift @ 79kg - Better than Elite
    Max 108.5kg PC @ 68kg _ Better than Elite
    Max 180kg deadlift @ 68kg - Better than Elite
    Kelly 105kg C&P - Better than Elite
    Nina 77.5kg BP @ 60kg - Better than Elite
    Nina 105kg squat @ 60kg - Better than Elite
    Nina 127.5kg deadlift @ 60kg - Better than Elite
    Nina 55kg C&P @ 60kg - Better than Elite

    Theres more, but I wont bore you with them.

    Too optimistic

    To be fair, the one with the most "better than elite" numbers is Nina, and hasn't she won some national competitions?

    The "elite" are the national competitors, the winner of a national competition is better than the elite.

    Those are all damm big lifts, for their size, so you don't consider them special?

    Elite is elite, it means that they have acheived a standard far above that of the normal person. MArcos how many people do you know have done a 165kg press @ 90kg, or better than 1.8 time their body weight? not a lot i am assuming.. now compare that number with how many people go to a zombie gym, and then how many people dont, how many people out of nearly 7 billion could bench 1.8 times body weight, I am just guessing here but probably less than 0.01% I would say that puts you in an elite class of lifter..

    But you have high standards, and that is why you have high results... perspective plays an important part here. maybe just ignore the standards they offer, keep their calculation, and apply new standards, or just use the value, to compare against other peoples and yourself...it would not be too much different from the wilks score...bw vs lift.

    I think that only Fadi would be considered to have Better than Elite lifts on here.

    The guys at PTC are strong, but not Fadi strong. Advanced would be a better term I feel.

    Shorty would cause the calculator to blow up lol.
