What should you be lifting?

Want to know your current level? What your strengths and weaknesses are? I've created a spreadsheet to give you complete details on where you're at and where you should be. Using multiple data sources and my limited Excel skills I've created a document that allows you to enter your age, gender(please Enter specifically as 'Male' or 'Female', bodyweight, Squat and Deadlift 1RM numbers and it will give you some serious data. Enter all data into the parameters boxes to the side of the document.

The first column will tell you what numbers you should be lifting for every exercise based on your current heaviest lift (either Back Squat or Deadlift). The Remaining columns give you numbers and skill levels for all lifts.

Bodyweight exercise weight include bodyweight. For Example if your bodyweight is 80kg and the number stated for your pull up is 50kg this means you should be able to do a pull up with around 30kg of assistance. If the number is greater than your bodyweight it means you should be able to do with weight added.

This document will allow you to work out your strengths and weaknesses and give you some clear direction for goals etc. Please let me know how you get on with it.
