I started following the current cycle on January 21st and am really enjoying it. The drop down menu to the right lists descriptive names for the cycles (e.g, Basic Rep Cycle, Classic Cycle, Russian Squat Cycle). Does this current cycle have such a name/goal?

This cycle will be named after it is completed.

Well it turns out I'm an idiot. I re-read what you guys had posted for following the rep/set scheme on the info page and of course, i had it all wrong. Loading/Set/Rep Prescriptions Weightlifting prescriptions will be notated with the exercise, the intensity (loading), reps and sets. For example: Snatch – 75% x 2 x 5 This would indicate snatching 75% of the athlete’s 1RM snatch weight for 5 sets of 2 reps. If a load is not specified, notation for sets and reps will be in the reverse order. For example: Pull-ups – 5 x 10 This would indicate 5 sets of 10 reps. I HAD BEEN DOING EVERYTHING IN REVERSE... EVERY DAMN THING.... 2 SETS OF 5 REPS IS WHAT I HAVE BEEN DOING.... AND THE SAME REVERSE ORDER FOR EVERYTHING ELSE. dammit. now i have to get back on track.
