2-Position Clean - 160 x 2 x 5
Snatch Deadlift - 155 x 3 x 4
Front Squat - 195 x 3 x 3 / 205 x 3 x 2
Worked 3x15 kipping pullups into superset of last couple squats

The snatch deadlift feels really light. Should I be working a higher percentage of my snatch or working on position?

BSO - You can up the sn DL as long as your posture remains perfect.

Greg, what are the main differences between the first and second editions of your book?
Greg Everett 2009-10-05
Jeremy - Biggest change is that the programming section is expanded greatly; lift progressions are updated; more on the squat, including the back squat; lift analysis sections expanded. There are over 100 additional pages in total - all sections have been updated and improved however possible.

Kind of the same question as before. Should I be working from a 1rm? I am currently at 200 for my cleans and 195 for my snatch but they feel light when I do them? Love the program though. Definitely seeing gains and getting stronger

James -

You will work from a 1rm for the percentages. If they are too light you may be able to push the last sets up a bit within reason. Don't go to weights you will miss.
