This is the page for Exrx's Deadlift standards. At the bottom, they also have pages for the press, bench press, squat, and clean.

I'd classify myself in the adult male 132 pound group. Are these standards for one rep maxes or sets?

I would say they are talking one rep max.
The numbers seem a very low... On the other hand the power clean numbers seem about right.

I see now though, when they use the term elite they are simply referring to serious lifters not elite powerlifters.
