If you can hit 21 reps, add 2.5kg to the starting weight next workout.

My weights are in lbs, so I fudge the formula a bit while staying consistent with the theory. My snatch workout goes:

70#x1x5, 85#x1x5, 90#x1x5, 95, 100, 105, 110, 115, 120

That would end up at 5# below my PR

My last c&j workout went:

100x1x5, 115x1x5, 120x1x5, 125, 130, 135, 140, 145, 150

Where 150# was my previous PR.

At the low weights I lift, that approach works better for me than starting at 70%.
wow. 15 reps on the minute for me was pretty taxing, 20 would prob put me over the edge!

i made 16 sessions of that.... but have moved off it too. i also felt i was stalling a bit.
