Will the cycle of exercises include trials where we measure our max efforts? I have a rough idea for most of them but want to increase the loads when appropriate and want to know if that is part of the workout specifications or something that I should be doing outside of these workouts. Thanks!

You will test maxes on week 9 of this cycle.

is the % on the power clean and the power snatch based off a clean max/snatch max, or the power clean max/snatch max? am supposed to be power snatching 60% of my squat snatch max? or my power snatch max? Thank!

Nick - The percentages will always be off of the listed exercise unless otherwise indicated. For this workout you will take the percentages off of your best power snatch and clean.

Is the DB press one or two handed?
Steve Pan 6 | 2013-08-07
It will be 2 handed DB presses.

Should I be cycling through the cleans (4+1) in rapid succession, or drop for shoulders and do them individually?
Tim 8 | 2013-09-06
nvm i found the answer: The reps should all be good with a solid starting position on each rep, so there is no "touch and go" with any of the reps.

Are the OHS' from a snatch 1RM or from a OHS 1RM if we know that?
Steve Pan 10 | 2014-03-25
The percentage will be off of your best OHS.

what kind of the press at the bottom of the day should I do?
Steve Pan 12 | 2014-09-10
Barbell Strict Press
