Holy back squats Batman.. 2 questions..I hopped on following daily programming mid week of 2nd week, im assuming this cycle is a back squat focus? On both snatch pulls and clean pulls, how high does the pull need to reach? Thanks!

•Back Squat - 60%x3, 70%x3, 80%x3, 85% x 3 x 2 The last set 2 sets of 3 or 1 of 3, then 1 of 2?

Fred, the set/rep schemes are fairly clearly explained in the "Program Help section". on the right.
Steve Pan 4 | 2013-05-21
Fred - The last part is 2 sets of 3 at 85%
Steve Pan 5 | 2013-05-21
David - The pulls should go to slightly above the hips. Focus on good pulling positions and a good extension at the top.
