After this year's CF Open I decided this year I need to improve my Olys.. so here I am at the home of one of the best in the biz. Thank you for providing this service to athlete's like me. I have already done today's workout, but I have a couple of questions if someone has time... 1. The Clean Deadlift.. is that 80% of your Clean Weight or of your Deadlift Weight? I assumed Clean Weight. 2. I am new to this cycle thing... Does each new training cycle have a different goal or is it generally always just to increase your lifts? Does this cycle have a goal? What is week 0? Is that just a week off between cycles?

In response to Brian W: Can you clean your deadlift weight? I doubt that..should be a pretty obvious answer...its 80% of your clean weight.

Thanks John. I certainly cannot clean my deadlift weight. I will research a little better before posting next time. (and try to use a little common sense) This goes the same for my cycle question.. I have been pouring over everything I can to try and answer my own question. The only thing I have not been able to find is a name/goal for this 9 week cycle. Did I miss this somewhere? I am willing to just follow it blindly because I know it is has a purpose and is planned by someone who knows their crap about this stuff.. just would be nice to know for myself so that I can talk/think a little more intelligently about what it is I am doing. Regardless, thanks for the help.

In regards to the clean deadlift... This is surely a deadlift with clean grip. Therefore it would make more sense to be lifting 80% of your max deadlift. 80% of your max clean is a fairly easy weight to deadlift?

The exercise should be off of you clean. The main focus should be reinforcing and strengthening good pull positions.

It is in fact the max of your deadlift in a clean position. If it was the max of your clean it would say (%of clean) similar to the RDL in 1st of may
