Strength mesocycle
I am looking ahead to the strength mesocycle of the mass gain program in issue 17of the journal.

snatch pull / RDL
Clean pull/ RDL

Not sure what the RDL stands for?

I believe the workout call for snatch pulls and clean pulls as shown in exercise video section?

Thanks in advance for clarification.

Romanian Deadlift: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5eZA_QDy9cY Might be better videos out there, but I was in a hurry. =D

OK RDL is romanian deadlift,

So the when the lift says:

clean pull/RDL: 95%x 3, 100%x 3, 105%x 3

do a clean pull 95% of 1RM on cleans with a RDL immidiately after for the 3 reps and so on for 100% and 105%.

I would read that as either clean pull OR romanian deadlift. If they were meant to be done together I think it would be written "clean pull + RDL". My two cents.
