    These figures are raw, but I thought they might be interesting to some.

    I thought this was pretty cool, and these folks seem to have a lot of neat stuff on the home page besides.

    Well I guess I'm advanced, and approaching elite. At least by someone's standards.

    I would say for regular gym goers who are not powerlifters those look about right.

    That is interesting, they define Elite as less than 1% of the weight-training population attaining that level. Interestingly enough (at least for 165) if you add their individual requirements up - it's pretty close to what was adopted by as the classification standard by 100% Raw and AAU for an Elite raw total. (1282 vs. 1298) Obviously a different definition of "Elite", but interesting nonetheless if it is true that only 1% of the weight-training population truly attains that level. Although my guess is that a higher percentage of lifters would hit these numbers.

    I'd say as far as the general population goes, 1% hitting those elite numbers is fairly accurate. I see a lot of people lifting weights in the commercial gym I go to, but I certainly don't see very many people hitting those elite numbers. You have to remember that powerlifters are probably less than 1% of the lifting population.

    I am not even sure 1% hit those numbers. I have never seen a 600 lb deadlift in a commercial gym. Ever. I have very rarely seen a parallel squat over 500 and i have trained at alot of gyms until i ended up where i am now. In all reality i have only seen a handful of non bounce 400 bench presses, but more than the squat and deadlift.
