Default OLY standards?

Does anyone know if an actual OL "standards" chart exists, basically the same thing as what Rippetoe and Kilgore did, but for the Sn and C&J?

Would you be able to work that out (with a bit of asking the right people) using Sinclair or something similar? I'm sure there is data form Nationals and regional etc events which you could use to estimate what a elite vs part time lifter would be expected to achieve.

That's unless someone has already made what you are looking for!

That's an interesting question. I can look up the Russian Standards for level 3, 2, 1, Master of Sport, and Master of Sport International Class, but I'll bet someone else gets to them first as I have no idea where that text is. I seem to remember for superheavyweights the Level 1 is around 295 Kilos, and Master of Sport is around 380, I think? Maybe less than that, but not significantly less. Level 3 is the lowest rank, 2 next up, then 1, etc.

When I started O Lifting back in 1992, they still had qualifying standards for the Olympics; mine was a 360 total as a super. I still have the old USAW Magazine with the chart in the back.

And then of course there are the old Bob Hoffman tables (bronze, silver, gold), but they're old and the weight classes only go up to 181+, if I recally correctly. Somebody else will be able to find them before I do.

There was some discussion of the Russian standards here (see Chris Betancourt's 2 posts in the thread):

I wouldn't be so concerned with finding and meeting tables of standards. I've heard from Rip that he really regrets including those tables with Practical Programming because people obsessed over them and asked a bunch of silly questions about how they matched up with the tables. The real standard you have to beat is "however much the other guy at the competition can lift".

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.
