I looked in the FAQ section and I still confused for the number of reps to perform of the complex. The way I understand it is 1 rep of the complex is 2 snatch DL to the knee + 2 DL knee to hip + 1 Snatch Pull. I do that 4 times (a total of 8 snatch DL to the knee, 8 DL knee to Hip, and 4 Snatch pulls) then I'm done with that exercise and move on to Back squat in this case. Is that understanding correct?

Yes you got it. I assume you are resting between sets (2+2+1, rest, repeat.)
Dustin 2013-03-11
Thanks Steve. I hadn't been resting betwen complexes - I was treating each complex as a single rep and doing 4 of them straight through. I'll start using your clarification, though.
Steve Pan 2013-03-11
Steven is correct. There will be 4 individual sets of the complex with rest.
