for the power snatch+snatch push press+OHS, can you explain what %of full means?
kecks 2 | 2013-05-14
i guessyou take the percentages of your snatch? which will usually be higher than your power snatch 1 RM?!

Steve addressed this in another comment section. Read the program help tab first, it includes ALOT of information about how he words things and how the programs are set up. Usually when a % is specified, it is % of THAT lift....so a power snatch at 60% is 60% of your power snatch max....but when it is specified "full" then the power snatch percentage is taken off your full (squat snatch) snatch max, which should be notably higher.

Austen - Nick and Kecks are correct. Usually the percentage would be off of your best power snatch, for the power ones during this cycle you will take them off of your best full snatch.
