New to the website.

When the workout says for example:

Snatch 85% 1 x 4

does that mean 1 set of 4

or 4 sets of 1

In other words, which comes first on the layout, sets or reps?

Thanks and great site.

For each set of the front squats- we do 2 reps at 80% and then do an additional rep w/ 85% with as little rest as possible correct?

First time doing the CA workout. Hope this is a good time to jump in.

Snatch 135#
Cleans (forgot the jerk) 225
FS 255
GHD. n/a No GHD, and given my perpetual ingoration of Ab specific work, I settled for some hanging leg lifts this time around.

I'll get better, I promise. Front bottom of my left knee was tender/sore last few days, this seemed like the wrong set of exercises to do, so I took it easy. Plus, no bumpers.Plus.... I had sand in my.. oh nevermind.

Will this make me bigger?

Did this WOD after maxing out, as I was glued to football on Saturday. Actually felt really good!

Jody Woodland 2008-11-11
Day late, weights low as I concentrate on proper reception.
SN - 135#
CJ - 170#
FS - 225#, 235#
GHD SU - 3x10 @ 25#

Is it normal to find it easier to receive a snatch in full squat than clean? I find myself with poor and inconsistent racking in the cleans even at the lower weights I'm using.

Jody - Really depends on your particular flexibility issues, anthropometrics, experience, etc.
