Is this weird?
first off im 16 years old and the stuff i read on here gives me alot to think about for when i am older and more willing to have my body go throught all that stress. Secondly i am right now a totally clean lifter, i havnt even ever taken creatine.
I am deadlifting 430 5 times, squatting about 450, and my bench is about 240... not so great considering im 6' 2" 220 lbs. I am trying to cut weight get a little toned then BULK! last year i did my first bulk totally natural and my squat (which i worked twice a week) litterally went up 10 lbs a week along with my bench about 5 lbs a week. this year though i know i shouldnt be deadlifting when im trying to cut has gone up a butt load when i first started about 2 months ago i could do about 370 once. thats quite an improvement i assume. but my question is, is it weird that its going up that fast or is it just my body is changing as i grow up... either way i sure do enjoy it, hahaha.
I love the site!

Deadlifts own u! Don't stop deadlifts just cause your trying to cut, that makes no sence.

To answer your question of if what you're doing is normal I would say no. You sound like an above average lifter with above average genetics to me. So don't complain!
16 years old, 220 with a 430 dead for reps, 450 squat and a 240 bench. WOW!
It sounds like you have a handle on what you are doing. You are doing big, compound, result producing exercises. I think that's great. A lot of teens read a few magazines and start in with the tricep kickback to full extension nonsense. Stick with the basics: squats, bench, deadlifts, rows, dips, pull-ups, etc.
You also stated that you are natural, not even using creatine. Smart kid. While I dont think creatine would hurt you it sounds like you are growing just fine on food and weights. Keep it up.
I'm going to suggest a book to you. It's called Beyond Brawn by Stuart McRobert. I wish to God I had this book when I was 16! I wouldn't have wasted so much time. Even if you aren't a hardgainer this book will keep you on the right path.
