Default Prescribed loading

Hey robb and greg, Fairly new to the P-menu, love everything about...even started to order some older copies to add to the library... anyways pretty simple question: On the strength microcycles the front squats are prescribed as 85% x 2 x 10 Does this mean 2 sets of 10 reps, or 10 sets of 2 reps?

Also one last question: on the snatch pull/RDL : 10% x3,105%x3, 110%x3 Is this meaning that were going more than our one rep max, and the x3 means single reps for 3 sets??

I was just a little confused on that..other than that, i am already on my 3rd week in the hypertrophy stage and already seeing some good results! Thanks for everything!!

The squat %s are based on your 1RM CLEAN - very important. Otherwise, they will be way too heavy. The pull/RDL %s are also based on your 1RM clean or snatch, which is why you can hit over 100% for 3 reps - you can deadlift/pull more than you can actually clean or snatch.

The set/rep numbers when preceded by a weight are reps x sets, i.e. 85% x 2 reps x 10 sets.
