Greg, I saw that you answered one question about the rep tempos for yesterday's workout. Just a quick question, what is the specific goal for prescribing rep tempos in your opinion, overloading specific portions of the movement? All that I've been able to find about the practice of prescribed rep tempos has to do specifically with increasing time under tension for mass-specific reasons. Thanks!
Greg Everett 2009-12-09
Jesse - I don't prescribe tempos very much (in fact I never have in these workouts, at least not formally), but I think they have purposes in some many cases. Largely as you said it would be to encourage hypertrophy, and in this case, it is partly that, partly wanting to get a bit of isometric endurance in those postural back extensors, and partly to ensure that people are really able to emphasize back extension rather than rush through the movement, which invariably winds up in softening backs at the bottom, defeating the purpose of the exercise (at least the purpose for which I'm using it here - back extensor strength/stamina).

Snatch heavy single 80kg 80% 1x3 (65kg) Clean and Jerk heavy single 105kg 80% 1x3 (85kg) Squats 100kg 3reps with 3 second pause. Greg/Aimee my jerks suck!!!!, More specifically I feel slow under the bar and sometimes end up pressing out the the jerk, any advice would be helpful.

Missed yesterday, wanted to make up SB... I may be catching heavier weights without being locked out, and pressing up once at bottom of squat. Snatch Balance 75-95-105 90%- 95 85%- 90 Snatch 75-95-115-125-135-140f-140f-140f 3 singles @ 115, several misses to get 3 good lifts C&J 115-135-155-155-155-165 PR is 185, I was struggling with the jerk portion- wrist position and balance after locking out under the bar.  3 singles @ 135 Pause BS 135-165-185-205-215 (20# up from last week) GM 3x10 @ 55 (10# up from last week)

I'm getting a cold so the lifts where pretty draining. No Pr's but I got to 170 for snatch, 200 for clean and 245 for BS with a pause.
Greg Everett 2009-12-10
Scott - Can't give you much advice without knowing why you're not getting under it. If you can post some video, we can give you an answer.

Snatch - Heavy Single - 195 Lbs (97% 1RM) 80%= 155x1x3 @1min. Cln & Jerk - Heavy Single - 240 Lbs (96% 1RM) 80%= 190x1x3 @1min. Back Squat - Heavy Triple w/3s. pause 285 Lbs (up 10 Lbs from last week) Took yesterday (12/9) off due to fatigue and caught up on programming today. Everything felt good...except the frigid temps in the gym...

51/F/125/64" SN: 65#, 54x1x3 C&J: 80#, 64x1x3 BSQ: 115# w/3sec pause GM: 40# 3x10 Felt slower today. Working on form, wider grip on snatch seemed to help avoid pressing out.

Sn - 170 (5lb PR!) -> 135x1x3 C&J - due to shoulder pain, subbed clean DL - 265x3x3 SQ - 235 (10lbs added from last week) GM - 85 (10lbs added from last week) B/C of Christmas activities, I won't be working out for the next 3 days, so I added the following metcon at the end: 15-12-9 reps for time of: 95lb OHS pullups 3:23 Phil 4:13
