Question: if 60% of our max if fairly light, is it beneficial to bring up the weight to a "medium" heavy weight? or are the %s something that is scientific for maximum future results?
Greg Everett 2008-02-26
Dave - It should be fairly light. Remember that it's 60% of your max snatch and clean - not max power snatch and power clean.

Is ther a specific back issue of performance menu that deals with diet for strength athletes or do you have any specifics you can pass my way. I am crossfiter who has found great gains from the zone but if I'm taking 17 weeks off crossfit to improve my strength and Olympic lifts, I should be accompaning my training with the proper fuel to make sure I am getting the most out of my training. Thanks.

Thought this light(er) day was a good one to jump back into the CA WODs Bulgarian section.

Joint mobility
Ext. Mod. Burgener w/u, 3 reps, done with both pipe and 15kg bar

Muscle snatch w/u: 20kg x 2, 29kg x 2, 34kg x 2
All work sets done on 3 minute interval
Muscle snatch (3 x 2): 39kg x 2 x 3
Power snatch + 3 OHS (60% x 4 sets): 46.5kg x 4 sets
Power clean + push jerk + jerk w/u: 46.5kg, done immediately after last PS+3OHS set
Power clean + push jerk + jerk (60% x 4 sets): 57.5kg x 4 sets

Saving metcons for the weekend, unless I'm feeling spunky (or if I get to the gym early enough!). Going to work on tuck planches through the day today.

Been missing workouts lately.
Was up for 56 hrs with only 3 hrs sleep working, worked on an ebay computer all weekend trying to load drivers, spent the last two days searching for a minivan and just bought an 01 Town and country limited w/81k for 5900 cash. Sweet ride for the wife to be and the (5) kids. Maybe now I can get back to business/pleasure.

Felt like crap today. Weak and out of shape. Here we go.....
