Today I finally broke the 90 Kilo barrier. I was only planning on working up to 80K with multiple lift sets (3 sets of 3 and 5 sets of 2 but felt really good so I decided to keep going and worked my way up to 90K from 80K with singles). Missed with the bar staying to forward on my 1st try then made an adjustment and made the second try easy. After that I went back down and finished with 4 sets of 1 with 80K with 45 sec rest between each. I made this at a body weight of 173 lbs and height of 6'1".

Not many guys over 6' tall can snatch bodyweight or more. Good job.
