I am confused by the C&J?

Clean & jerk - 70% x 1 + 2, 80% x 1, 10% x 1 + 2, 80% x 1 x 2

Is it supposed to be a 70% effort for the 3rd set? Also is the final 80% effort 2 sets of a single rep?

Greg Everett 2008-09-25
Matt - Sorry, yes - 70%, not 10%. And yes, the final 80% is done for 2 sets of 1 rep.
Cullen Foresman 2008-09-25
So, just to make sure I've got it, this is C&J 70% x 1 rep, rest, 70% x 2 reps, rest, 80% x 1 rep, etc. Correct?
Greg Everett 2008-09-25
Cullen - Almost. 70% x 1 + 2 means 1 clean + 2 jerks, 1 set.
Justin "Thor" 2008-09-25
This scheme is just to make sure we don't drink and lift right ? :)
Cullen Foresman 2008-09-25
Oh, right, I knew that! Its been a long day, too fatigued for my memory to work right I suppose. Thanks Greg.

And thank you in general for the great programing. I've been following it for about 6 months now and loving it more and more all the time.

GDH reverse crunch?

I googled your site, found a reference from May 18 but the link to the photo is gone. General googling also unsuccessful. Thanks in advance, JW.

Overhead Squat - Worked up to 190 (BW) with a pause at the bottom (PR!)
Snatch - 115 x 1 x 5
Clean & Jerk - 140 x 1 + 2, 160 x 1, 140 x 1 + 2, 160 x 1 x 2

The lifts felt really great today. Admittedly, it was light weight, but I felt solid during the 2nd pull and my Jerks felt really fast and solid! The OHS was a 15-lbs PR and is a major step considering how abysmal my previous record at 175 was. I'll be over 200 next week when there isn't a 95% day following! :-)

3 rounds for time of:
- 300 m row
- 10 KB high pulls - 55-lbs
MetCon: 5:12

One word: OUCH!

Weighted sit-up (behind neck) - 3 x 8
Matt Wichlinski 2008-09-26

stand in front of the GHD with your back to the pad, do a back bridge over the pad and grab the foot braces with your hands. Your lower back is supported with the pad, your upper body supported by your hands on the foot brace, lower slightly bent legs toward the floor and curl or crunch them up to your chest, repeat. Feels a little awkward at first, but it opens you up and gets in them abs nice and deep like...

Snatch 195
CJ 215, 255, 215, 255

Metcon 5:10

went easy on the abs, they are still killing me from ab roll outs from the feet the other day. I'm trying to do them like Ross Enamait with weight vest's from the feet and one handed, Dude is a beast.
Greg Everett 2008-09-26

First day back with the lifts after jacking up my back last sunday. Long warm-up with some added hip-flexor and dynamic hamstring stretches.

Snatch: 115x1x5 (~65%)
Clean & Jerk: 165x1x2 x 3 (~72%)

Still a bit of slight discomfort, mainly on the third pull lean-back, but nothing too bad. Ended with ice, ibuprofen, fish oil and more stretching. Feels good to at least be back to the lifts!
