Hi there, One quick question regarding reps. If the exercise is 85% 3*5 snatch. Should I after completing the first rep drop the bar on the ground, repostition myself and go right into the 2 rep or do I not drop the bar at all and do the all reps in the sett unbroken?
Personally I'm not used to unbroken sets with snatch and cleans when the % of max is 70% or higher

Hey my hip bones are bruised form hitting the bar off my hips in the snatch, any tips on how to heal this faster of prevent it from happening again?

Tmlovell -

Stop banging the bar into your hips! You should be sliding the bar up your thighs and brushing it up the hips rather than slamming it into the hips and brusing them.

You should drop the bar and reset your position for each lift in the set. The set will be unbroken as long as you are near the bar (within reason). A few seconds rest or a couple breaths between reps should be good.

It is just work to a 3RM in the snatch and a 6RM in the back squat. There are no back off sets or 1RMs today.

My 3 rep max snatch proved to be higher than my 1 rep max. Should I raise the wheights to fit my new max lifts? Or should i keep the "old" max lifts that i started the program with?

You will adjust your weights to a new max. You will have to make a judgement call on what that is until you test for a new 1RM.
