I'd be pretty happy with class 1 as that would be around 220 kg for me. That sounds like a snatch of 100kg+ a clean of 120. Sounds fairly doable. Right now conservatively I'm at youthIII (lol) but I guess class3 would be a good goal.

Josh Everett would just be under CMS according to that table which Dutch is right around as well.

i can't wait till i can outlift all the 105lb women in the world
This idea appeals to me.

Checking off weight classes is totally the way to go. 48F is soo close...

Also, the shift from Male classes to Female classes is a bit smoother because the 75+F WR is tied with the 62M WR.

Achieving something like Hoffman's (non-drugged) standards for men appeals more to me than trying to beat genetic freak drugged-to-the-gills miniature Chinese women.

Call it apples to apples...whatever you like.

Dan John likes standards, I dig them too. I had some fun arranging them in my personal goals sheet:

Powerlifting 82.5kg (181.8#) weight class
  • Back Squat
    • 325# (Hoffman bronze) - done
    • 350# (Hoffman silver) - working from 355# estimated 1RM on next 5/3/1 cycle
    • 364# (2x BW) - hoping to hit this or the 367# at next PL meet in March
    • 367# (Rip's advanced)
    • 375# (Hoffman gold)
  • Bench Press
    • 273# (1.5x BW) - hoping to hit one or both of these at next PL meet in March
    • 275# (Rip's advanced)
  • Deadlift
    • 400# (Hoffman bronze) - hoping to hit this at next PL meet in March
    • 438# (Rip's Advanced)
    • 445# (Hoffman silver)
    • 455# (2.5x BW)
    • 490# (Hoffman gold)
Weightlifting 85kg class:
  • Snatch
    • 185# (Hoffman bronze) - done
    • 200# (Hoffman silver) - only 6# away!
    • 215# (Hoffman gold)
  • C&J
    • 240# (Hoffman bronze) - only 2# away!
    • 260# (Hoffman silver)
    • 280# (Hoffman gold)
  • Total
    • 192.5kg / 425# (Russian Class III, approx. Hoffman bronze total) - done
    • 460# (Hoffman silver total)
    • 215kg / 474# (Russian Class II)
    • 495# (Hoffman gold total)
    • 240kg / 529# (Russian Class I)
Other lifts:
  • Standing Press
    • 155# (Hoffman bronze) - working from 160# estimated 1RM on next 5/3/1 cycle
    • 164# (Rip's Advanced)
    • 180# (Hoffman silver)
    • 182# (1x BW)
    • 205# (Hoffman gold)
  • Power Clean
    • 264# (Rip's advanced)
    • 273# (1.5x BW)
For someone with as diverse of fitness goals (some would say "fitness ADD", that's fine) as myself, these types of standards are much more realistic to me. Comparing myself to Olympic athletes seems like a quick road to disappointment, particularly since I don't "specialize".

FYI, I qualify as a Master's WL athlete as of this year.

I guess women would start by aiming to beat all the Juniors records.

Only 16kg to go to out-snatch a 44kg 17-year-old girl!

D'oh!
