You are doing good if you ask me. I sure couldn't do that at 13. But forreal, don't worry about your numbers in comparison to others. Most of the people on this site don't like to answer these types of questions, but you're obviously new so I didn't want to leave you out in the cold. If you want to know your progress in relation to the average, you could find it on a table or chart I am sure. Who cares if it's average? It's the best you've got, and as long as you keep bustin your butt, it's good enough.

135 for that age is pretty good, I did the same but was no where near in military press. Don't compare to others, its not really fair untill you get into weight classes and stuff for powerlifting.

What is the point of looking good if you can not use the muscles for what they were meant for?

rko, this is the powerlifting forum. No one here lifts for aesthetics. We lift for athletics.
