how these stats look?
So im 17 weigh roughly 165lbs, about 5'11" and bodyfat pretty low i wanna say around ten but i dont know how to calculate it exactly but anyway heres some of my lifts
Bench Press 225
Squat 275 for 4 reps
Deadlifts i got 300 but i feel like i could get 315 now that i think about it... And i just started doing these two weeks ago!

eat more and remember form is more important than anything. alot of new lifters cheat themselves out of real gains because they want to be strong to fast but youll be alot stronger in the long run if you start right. be consistent and youll get there.. your defenately not a weakling for 17 but you got a long way to go.

yeah sorry not really comparing to anyone just in general haha but ok yeah I'm gonna do mad cow 5x5 and hopefully by the end of the three months ill be deadlifting
400 bench 275 and squat 375... i mean I'm really close to being the strongest in my class but i just don't weigh much at all i mean the only really stronger guys are weighing like 190s 200 so i need to get up there

Well. For routines I like 5/3/1 and westside barbell. They work well For me.

Focus on your technique under the tutelage of seasoned vets for the next 2-3 years and then re-assess.

OP your doing just fine. Don't compare yourself to anyone but yourself. Keep making small gradual improvements and be consistent. At 17 you have all the time in the world. Keep lifting hard and smart. By the time your 20-25 you will have some very impressive numbers.
It's cliche but it's not a sprint it's marathon.
