Hi Coach This week finish Strength Development Cycle my question is which program do you recomend for me 165 lbs snatch 285 lbs front squat 335 back squat 215 clean and jerk my goal is i want to load the next year 200 snatch and 255 clean and jerk strength, power and technique

Do one of the cycles that emphasize the snatch and clean & jerk - your classic lift numbers are low relative to your strength numbers.

What if after doing a heavy single(at the end of the week), I managed to surpass my 1 RM for the Snatch and C&J, should i use these new 1 RM in my computation of my working sets for the next week? or should i just stick with my 1 RM at the start of the cycle and just get a new 1 RM after finishing the 5-week cycle? Thanks so much!

Cyrus - If you set a new PR you will take your percentages off of that for the rest of the cycle.

Thanks for the reply. As a beginner, i am setting PRs often bec. of technique refinement. Do you get your 1 RM in the Back Squat, Power Clean, Power Snatch & Push Press after every cycle too? if yes, how do you schedule this along with getting your 1 RM for the classical lifts? Thanks Steve!

You will test maxes when it is called for in a cycle, in some cases you will set PRs as heavy singles are called for. You will have to roll with the blows and adjust as you set new PRs.

Hit a PR on Snatch today 185lbs & it actually felt pretty easy. Days like today are what keeps me going.

On days where a heavy single is called for, if I meet my PR and feel good should I keep going up?
Steve Pan 9 | 2013-04-09
Robert - If you feel good you should try and beat your PR. Try not to match your PRs, make attempts that would beat them by at least a kilo.
