Dave -

Based on those numbers I'd expect you to be able to snatch about 200 lbs and CJ about 230-245 lbs. That said, there are huge variations among athletes in regard to how their classic lifts compare to their strength lifts. Those numbers would be considered quite good - they would mean you're able to apply a great deal of your strength to the lifts rather than having a large surplus.

But really, don't worry about that - keep getting all of your lifts up.
