Perhaps Dan John can fill in the details. He has this posted on his site: http://danjohn.org/goldsilver.html

No mention as to where it came from, but I am sure he has posted that information before.

Hoffman Standards are just arbitrary weightlifting standards set by Bob Hoffman, founder of the York Barbell company and Strength and Health Magazine(orininaly published in this magazine of course) . They are not standards to live by. Just a better guide to judge your weightlifting sucses against non drug influenced numbers. Sort of like McRoberts 300-400-500, but not limited to the powerlifts.

Those numbers are still valuable. Some of the lifts have different names...ie., the Bench Press, but look at the "Big Lifts" like the snatch and Clean and Jerk. 230 and 300 for someone over 198 is still...worthy!!!

I like this idea, I use it in my coaching, of having standards. I have entire charts of distances for throwers by grade level and Lift levels by age.

Just a note: By 18, I expect someone to clean and bench 319...or be on the road to it. (You can be 18 and 364 days, too). If you want to be at the upper levels of throwing, you need standards.

For crossfitters, it might be worth someone's time to chart out some of the standard moves...then figure them for either bodyweight...or LACK of bodyweight. The lifts go up as you get heavier, the pullups, muscle ups...I'm guessing...would go down.
