    I'm 16, 5'5" and I weigh 150 pounds and deadlift 170kg without chalk or a belt. Is that good for someone my age?

    A good deadlift is generally classed as 2 or 2.5x bodyweight, depending on who you ask. Given that you're 68kg and 170/68 = 2.5, yeah, very good mate Guessing you've got quite long arms like me? Long armed folk tend to suck at bench and OHP, but we make up for it with our deadlifting ability

    I would say my arm length is proportional to my body, I think I am ok at OHP but I would like to bench more.

    I may try using a belt once, just to see how much more I would be able to deadlift using it.
