The squat %s are based on your 1RM CLEAN - very important. Otherwise, they will be way too heavy. The pull/RDL %s are also based on your 1RM clean or snatch, which is why you can hit over 100% for 3 reps - you can deadlift/pull more than you can actually clean or snatch.

The set/rep numbers when preceded by a weight are reps x sets, i.e. 85% x 2 reps x 10 sets.
