ken c 2009-07-15
muscle snatch: 160; 145
2 position cleans: 185
jerks: 175; 190; 205

pr'd my power snatch on monday at 185. is there any kind of desired ratio between your power snatch and snatch? like if you can power snatch x you should be able to snatch y.

When it says: "Muscle snatch - heavy single; 90% x 1 x 2"

Does that mean to work up to a heavy single today and then take the 90% x 1 x 2, or do I take 90% of my current heavy single?
Greg Everett 2009-07-16
Ken - Not a desired one, but a descriptive one - PS is usually about 80-85% of snatch.
Greg Everett 2009-07-16
edward - sorry - meant to note that. 90% is of the heavy single in this workout, not your max.
Andrew O 2009-07-19
Muscle Snatch: 100, 90
2-position Cleans: 135
Jerks: 140, 145, 150

First time on one of your WODS, I really enjoyed it!

Thank you,

good day
for example:
Muscle snatch - heavy single, 90% of That x 1 x 2
2-position clean - 65% x 5 sets
Jerk - 70% x 3, 75% x 3, 80% x 2 x 3

when you say heavy single
take 1RM for that day but for example
in the same or my maximum jerk of the week?
and if next week so I get to see another

90% x3x4 jerk I have to go back to get my maximum for each week? of the exercises I do or I just do it with the maximum weight to take out the first week?

Adal - I'm not totally sure I understand the question, but let me try to answer. Heavy single means working up to the heaviest weight you can on that day. %s that follow a heavy single or RM are of that weight, not of your all time best, so you will take it off that same day's best, not what you did the week before or any other time.
Adal Zurita 2011-09-09
I think not understanding the question

I do it again

every week we do the same exercises
every week there again calculate maximums for each exercise??
work on my 1RM I have from the first week?
say this because I feel stronger
Thanks for your attention and explanation

Adal - If you make new 1RMs during the cycle, use those new 1RMs to calculate %s.

Not sure how to read the reps. 90%x1x2? So you do 1 rep at 90% then 2 unbroken at 90%?
