How could I determine the WOD percentages with 145lbs to work with, weighing 175lbs? My supplies are limited at the moment.

Greg, I have a meet Mar 29, sat, what should I do differently next week to prepare if anything, and to bugger it up a little I seem to have developed some thumb pain on the left hand, primarily when I catch the snatch. Resting it today with ice and ibuprofen, any other tips?

Stick with the RXed training this week, except on Saturday, only snatch and CJ to your intended opening weights. Then throw in a 90-95% front squat. On Monday, snatch and CJ 90% of your openers for 1-2 singles; Tuesday 80% for 2-3 singles; Wednesday 70% for 3-4 singles; Thursday 60% or take the day off; Friday day off or very light, easy training - 50-60% for singles, no more than 3. That should get you well prepared to go big on Sat. Good luck!

Get as close as you can. You can try upping the reps 1-2 in cases when you don't have enough weight, and add a few more sets as well. There's really no substitute for weight, though.
