The clean high pull is 85% of what? If it's 85% of our max clean and jerk, there's no way I can high pull that weight! lol

It is off of your best clean. Pull as high as you can and try to keep good positions, if you have to take the weight down a bit that should be okay.

What does the (1+1) mean in "60% x 2(1+1)"

Look under the Program Help menu. This is answered in detail in the "Loading/Set/Rep Prescriptions" section. As this is particular one is written I interpret it as 4 reps in the set... clean, jerk, clean, jerk

Brian W,
Thanks for the point out. I missed the help section on the side.

The 2(1+1) would be the one clean and one jerk and you would perform this sequence twice. If it was 2+2 you would do 2 cleans followed by 2 jerks.
