Hi Greg, I had commented previously about the 3 block leg strength program. I loved the first four weeks and I am in my deload week of the 2nd block. Thank you again for posting these programs on your blog. Can you tell me the focus of the 8 week program you started Monday? Thanks, Brandon

On a WOD like today's, just to confirm , that would be 1 rep from each of the 3 positions on the clean correct ? I have seen 3 reps at each possition. Thank you for all you do.

Brandon - No particular focus - it will work toward max snatch and clean & jerk on the last Saturday of the cycle.
Greg Everett 4 | 2012-11-28
James - 1 rep from each position = 1 set.

Only one jerk per set, right?
Steve Pan 8 | 2013-01-24
Michael - Only one jerk per set is correct.

Just out of curiosity, how do I know how much to use for good mornings? Thanks! - Daniel

Daniel - You should feel out a weight that you can really keep a good back arch and stay safe with. They should be a light to moderate weight. Try starting at 40kg or so and feeling out a weight from there.

Thanks for the reply. Last question. Is everything written as: Weightxsetsxreps or Weightxrepsxsets
Steve Pan 12 | 2013-06-25
If there is a prescription for the weight it will be reps then sets. So 70%x3x5 is 5 sets of 3 reps at 70%. There is more information on the notation at the program help section on the right.

on the 3 position clean, is it a squat clean or power clean we are supposed to perform or doesn't that matter?
Steve Pan 14 | 2014-04-28
It will be a full squat for each clean.
J Lra 15 | 2014-09-24
The first movement is confusing. I get the 3 position clean + jerk but the percentages and the "x4 sets" at the end throws it off. Are we supposed to do one 3-position clean with 65% then load 70% then 75% and that's one set?
Steve Pan 16 | 2014-09-25
J Lra - You will do one set at 60%, one set at 65%, four sets at 75%.
