I played today minus the back squats. I'm on my 4th week of a strength cycle. I usually accomplish the "Snatch Game" on Saturday mornings (see link below), but I couldn't resist this session today. It came out as expected, I'm pretty wore out from the heavy sets I've been doing this past four weeks. All weights in lbs.
Snatch - max-145
Clean & jerk - max-185
Stiff-legged deadlift - 3 x 5 @ 225

Shoulder still a bit hurt , so no max snatch.
Clean and jerk -87.5 kg. Felt too easy to be a max,but I missed 90 so..
back squat -137 kg.
Went very light on the stiff legged deadlifts.
Also, a quick question. Is strict pressing ever programmed into the workouts or is it not useful for developping strength for the jerk?
