From your experiences, I'd like to know where I need improvement or if I should stll be trying to get just a base line level of strength first. Appreciate the input.

5'6", ~170lbs
Best Squat: 405lbs
Best Deadlift: 425lbs
Best Bench (not exactly sure on this one since I havent benched in a while): 275 lbs

Best Clean and Jerk: 225lbs
Best Snatch(mostly been working on technique to get comfortable with it): 155lbs.
if that was a full depth squat and the bench was at least touched, I bet you could go out and enjoy a PL contest right now. depending on turnout possibly even medal in a small contest...not that you should make it your goal but a PR in a meet is 90000% better than any gym lift.
