Default Heavy / Med Heavy?

I am trying not to over think the prescribed weights, but for a nut like me percentages are so much easier for me to follow.

From conversation with Greg I understand the concept that heavy could be different over the course of workouts. One day 85% might be heavy and another day a new PR might come working towards a heavy single.

Having some guidelines for those terms would help me a lot. Here is how I have been interpreting them. Once again I work towards what feels appropriate for that day, but it sure helps me to focus this way.

Heavy 85% to MAX
Med Heavy 75% to 85%
Medium anything 60% to 75%
Light up to 60%

Any thoughts on this?
