Kara jerk
  • Back Squat - test max
  • Snatch - heavy single
  • Clean & Jerk - heavy single
Don't expect PRs on the snatch and CJ today. If your heavy single is less thn 85%, get some additional singles in between 75-80% afterward.

is that ok to do Clean and Jerk before the Snatch? as i'm focusing in my clean and jerk i always fell a bit tired after the snatch

That should be okay to do the C&J first on this day.

How disappointed should I be that I didn't hit a new PR on my Squat here? I am stronger though, as I hit my old PR for both snatch and C&J after I hit my current PR for squat. I made a 5K jump from my last set of BS so maybe too big? Maybe I just got scared and a little dizzy, so I bailed. Either way, love the program.

Brandon -

You should set up your squats so that you don't match your current PR. When going for a max make sure you try to beat that PR by at least a kilo instead of repeating the previous PR. It is okay that you didn't make a PR as you probably increased your strength but it just didn't show on this day.
