Default Beginner's Program Question for Greg Everett


I've decided to follow the beginner's program in the book, and am looking at Day 2.
Back Squat seems reasonable, but the Snatch deadlift 105% x 2 x 2 - is that of my workweight Snatch from the day before? If so, my Snatch was 50Kg yesterday, but my deadlift 1RM is 150Kg + (haven't checked in a few months). I can't see much of a benefit from deadlifting 52.5Kg, should I up this?

Also, the Push Press 75% x 5 x 5 - is this of the jerk weight? I'm not sure what my 1RM push press is. Play by ear or use jerk weight?
