For the clean pulls, are the percentages based on a 1RM clean pull, or on a 1RM clean?
Greg Everett 2007-12-16
Clean/snatch deadlift/pull %s are based on the clean/snatch 1RM.

Are we supposed to add weight for our pull-ups only when rx'd, or is that the default?
Dr. G 2007-12-17
Today's CA WOD:

1:30 rest taken between all sets and exercises
Front squat (75% x 3 x 5): 85kg x 3 x 5
Clean pull (work up to 100% x 2): 89kg x 2
Push press (same weight as last Monday x 3 x 5): 50kg x 3 x 5, accidentally went 5kg too light, stayed there after realizing it due to left A/C joint and trap soreness, probably a really good decision
Pull-ups (3 x near max reps): 10, 8, 7, first two sets done with commando grip, alternating pull-up side each rep, last set done underhand grip
KB Turkish Get-up sit-ups (25%BW x 10 x 3): 35#KB x 10 x 3, done a bit lighter than Rx'd, floor press done between all reps

Left trap and both A/C joints still not 100%.

Jeff -

Normally you'd add weight to your pull-ups if you're able to do more than 10 or each set. But this week is a light week, so no weight.
Matt 2007-12-17
What's a "bulgarian cycle"?

Greg Everett 2007-12-17
Matt -

Basically it's little other than snatching, clean & jerking, and front squatting. Heavy.
Dr. G 2007-12-17
Coach Greg,
I posted a thread today on A/C joints and overhead work, if you have any insight I'd be very grateful! Even if it simply amounts to "suck it up".

Front squat: 165x2, 165x3, 155x3, 157x3x2 -- screwed this up, forgot my logbook and tried to front squat my back squat weights from the other day (and heavier than the last set of front squats). FSs should have been in the 130s. Oops.
