This ^^^^^^^

Too many people get bent out of shape for not meeting %'s in a table. Just get out there and lift. Get to a BW snatch and 1.25x CJ, then set your next goals. Mine are a 100kg snatch @77kg BW, and 125 CJ. I am also a master.

Keep in mind everybody is different so you won't fit perfectly into a table, nor should you, just get out there and lift, then lift more weight.
