The dumbells in my gym go up to 100lbs, and I can easily rep those for shoulder presses (full ROM, dumbbell touches my shoulders). So I am pretty strong, but not powerlifter strong - it's not like I am benching 600lbs or something like some of the guys I know.
In my book you are more than just "pretty strong", you are extremely strong.
To me it seems that a lot of gym goers grossly understimate how strong they are compared to the average of the population since they mainly compare themselves to others people in the gym.
