That's a good question. The advantage is lots of repitition at a good working weight. I probably should not have used the term "sets across". That tends to imply I am going for linear progression like on a Starting Strength model where I am trying to increase my 5 rep squats by 5-10lbs per week. That's not at all what I am going for on these sets of doubles and triples. I am really trying to drill consistency with the lifts.
The only reason I noted above I was going to try the same workout this week with heavier weights is because I think I can start working with a little heavier weight. I have been using 155-165 for my snatch working weight for a while now and 195-205 for CJ's.
Also, last week was the first time I did that workout in about two months. This week I want to repeat it just to see if I can do with heavier weights. Generally, I work with single reps quite a bit.
