Oh - And to clarify the 3 attempts. That means you get 3 attempts to make a given record weight. For example, if your best snatch is 100, and you try 101 and miss 3 times, you're done. If you make it the first time, generally a good call is to move on and be happy with the record. However, if you obviously have more in you, go for it. Point is, it doesn't mean try to make 3 new records on an exercise.
