At 14 I benched 250 all the time. Both my sons did also, my 15 year old does 300+ and my 17 year does 400+

Perfectly normal. When i played football in high school, there were at least 4 guys benching 500. None of us on the squad did less than 225, even the defensive backs were pushing at least 250
i myself had a max of about 310.

When you say lift I presume you mean bench press? Probably since it's not a very impressive number for a squat. Bench press, for the most part, is all technique and body type. Would this person happen to have short arms and a small stature?

Different people develop physically at different rates (one of the problems with everything in society being based on age). Anyway, probably natural.

Yeah, no kidding. My boy at 15 was 6'8" and 250lbs. Try getting HIM into theaters for a student price!

It's not unusual for someone at that age to be able to develop the muscles to lift that much. However, in many cases the skeletal structure has not developed fully enough to properly support that much, and permanent damage can result. The age varies widely person to person, but typically at 15-16 years a person can safely begin hardcore weighlifting. (there are various studies with different conclusions, but that's the general consensus)

I've been strength training for the past few months and can bench about 210. A friend of mine just tsarted and he's already lifting more than me. But he is much shorter and a bulkier guy in general. Body type does have a lot to do with it.
