Snatch - 70% x 1 x 4 78lb x 1 x 4 Clean & jerk - 75% x 1 x 3 118lb x 1 x 3 - good, practiced holding onto abdominal bracing through the lift so I'm tighter at the bottom. Much easier to stand up! Clean pull - 90% (of clean) x 3 x 3 138lb x 3 x 3 Clean deadlift - 100% (of clean) x 3 x 3 153lb x 3 x 3 Back squat - 75% x 3 x 5; follow each set immediately with 3 box jumps Accidentally, 135 x 3, then 140lb x 3 x 4. With 18 inch box.

WU- 500m row, 10 push ups, 5 dips-250m row, 10 push ups, 5 dips snatch progression with 25# bar 10x 65# muscle snatch Snatch- 115# x1x4 C&J- 135# x1x4 Clean Pull- 165# x3x3 Clean DL- 205# x3x3 HBBS- 205#x3x5 with 3 box jumps at 30" after each set. I'm new to the Oly cycles and I have a question. This morning the snatches felt heavy and my form suffered a bit. Should I lower the weight to correct form, or focus on hitting the %'s? Thanks for your help.

Personally,you should lower the weight to correct form.Technique is all!

Yeah- that's the direction I would tend to go. I just wanted to be sure I was maximizing the effects of this cycle. Or at least as much as possible for someone of my limited experience on the O-Lifts. Thanks!

Marcus - Adjust the %s as needed to make good lifts. Ideally you get as close as possible, but there is no point if you're deviating significantly technically. You will only get better at what you practice, so if you practice lifting poorly, you'll get very good at it.

Greg- Thanks. I think it was just one of those days. Either adjusting to the new programming, poor warm up, whatever. I have spent too much time trying to unlearn poor lifting. Oh yeah- what is the schedule for this cycle as far as work/rest? Thanks again.

Marcus - Rest days will be Fri and Sun.

Snatch - 70% x 1 x 4 55# Clean & jerk - 75% x 1 x 3 95# Clean pull - 90% (of clean) x 3 x 3 115# Clean deadlift - 100% (of clean) x 3 x 3 135# Back squat - 75% x 3 x 5; follow each set immediately with 3 box jumps 150# 30" box jumps The squats were tough, I think I've lost a bit of strength. The Snatch felt good, it did it from a hang though. My catch for the Cleans still need a bit of work.

Moved weights up to 225 and 315 #'s cause form is limiting factor: Snatch- 157.5x 1x4 C & J- 236x1x3 Clean Pull- 283.5x3x3 Clean Deadlift- 315x3x3 Back Squat- 305x3x5 with 3 24" box jumps each set.
