The clean high pull is 85% of what? If it's 85% of our max clean and jerk, there's no way I can high pull that weight! lol

Steve - It is off of your best clean. Pull as high as you can and try to keep good positions, if you have to take the weight down a bit that should be okay.

What does the (1+1) mean in "60% x 2(1+1)"
Brian W 4 | 2013-05-12
Jeff, Look under the Program Help menu. This is answered in detail in the "Loading/Set/Rep Prescriptions" section. As this is particular one is written I interpret it as 4 reps in the set... clean, jerk, clean, jerk

Brian W, Thanks for the point out. I missed the help section on the side. Jeff

Jeff - The 2(1+1) would be the one clean and one jerk and you would perform this sequence twice. If it was 2+2 you would do 2 cleans followed by 2 jerks.
