I have my first Olympic lifting meet coming up on May 3rd. Today, I decided to test out the lifts and finalize a plan for my opening and (hopefully) subsequent lifts. Here is where I ended up.

Open with 57kg (125#)
Second is 61kg (134#)
Third is 66kg (145#)
For the most part, these are going to be power snatches until I have time to build more confidence with getting under the bar quickly. I don't want red lights because I can't hold it in the squat.

Clean & Jerk
Open at 75kg (165#)
Second is 79kg (174#)
Third is 83kg (183#) or 84kg (185#)
I can go heavier for clean & jerk in CrossFit competitions, but for Olympic standards, I doubt that I will have an acceptable jerk above 84 kilos.
