Your numbers are nice for your age, espically the squats and cleans.

Tips would be, work hard and lift smart. Dont be a curl jockey, get proper nurition. Keep yourself hydrated well throughout the day. Avoid sugars, and alcohol as much as you can.

Change your workouts up every now and again... your body adapts so you have to throw it some curves.

Just work hard, lift heavy and eat 1.5G protein per lb of bodyweight. Get plenty of H20... atleast a gallon per day.
