On Thursday, I set a new personal record for the statch: 136.5 lb. That's a 14-lb improvement. Given that I haven't really practiced my snatch in half a year, I think 145 should be possible with a little technique work. I also managed 190 lb on the clean and jerk, just 2.5 lb short of my PR, even though I was already pretty fatigued from the the snatch workout. So, I think 1.5 times bodyweight is possible in the near term.
