Greg, I remember reading some of RA Roman's work, and I recall him saying that going beyond 90% in the snatch/clean pull adversely affects the coordination pattern of the lift. Your thoughts?
Greg Everett 2010-07-25
Andy - Really depends on the athlete and the circumstances. If you have someone who is very strong but whose classic lifts are relatively low, 95% will actually be quite light and as a consequence, that concern is unfounded. For a more advanced lifter, 95% for reps might be too heavy at certain times, but appropriate at other times; and some lifters are very good at pulling, while others can't pull correctly even at 60%. So in a case like this where I'm programming for athletes I don't know and never get to see, I have to do a lot of assuming, and one of my primary assumptions is that 95% for pulls is more than likely not particularly heavy for most people doing these workouts.

Greg, you are right in that assumption (at least in my case). Thanks for the thorough answer!
