Quick question regarding the unloading cycles:
Does the load back down to the base of .60 of 1RM?
Or, is it still stepping up 2% from the following week?
Either way it would be a decrease in load, so i'd guess to add 2% but want to verify this.

Thanks,
Jeff

Ah, found the answer. It goes back to the original base percentage.

On the strength cycle, for the 3X3 3-position cleans, would that be 9 cleans per set, for a total of 27? Also I'm assuming you switch arms for the one-arm Sotts press? Hopefully I did it right.

% will always be of your current 1RMs.

3-pos clean will be 3 cleans per set, not 9. For the sots, switch arms after completing the reps on the first arm.

Crap! Glad I did an extra rest day then.
