New to the website. When the workout says for example: Snatch 85% 1 x 4 does that mean 1 set of 4 or 4 sets of 1 In other words, which comes first on the layout, sets or reps? Thanks and great site.

Mike - Check out the "Info" link at the top of the WOD column for answers to all that and more.

For each set of the front squats- we do 2 reps at 80% and then do an additional rep w/ 85% with as little rest as possible correct?

First time doing the CA workout. Hope this is a good time to jump in. Snatch 135# Cleans (forgot the jerk) 225 FS 255 GHD. n/a No GHD, and given my perpetual ingoration of Ab specific work, I settled for some hanging leg lifts this time around. I'll get better, I promise. Front bottom of my left knee was tender/sore last few days, this seemed like the wrong set of exercises to do, so I took it easy. Plus, no bumpers.Plus.... I had sand in my.. oh nevermind. Will this make me bigger? j/k

S: 67.5kg C&J: 90kg FS: 110/120kg GHD: 20lb sand ball Felt uninspired to workout today Glad I didn't quit on myself Wasn't my best day but it was worthwhile
Jesse Woody 13 | 2008-11-10
Snatch: 170# x 1 x 4, one miss on second set. C&J: 225# x 1 x 4, relatively hard, shaky jerk. Front Squat: 230#/235# GHD Sit-Up +10, +15, +15
Jody Woodland 14 | 2008-11-11
Day late, weights low as I concentrate on proper reception. SN - 135# CJ - 170# FS - 225#, 235# GHD SU - 3x10 @ 25# Is it normal to find it easier to receive a snatch in full squat than clean? I find myself with poor and inconsistent racking in the cleans even at the lower weights I'm using.

Jody - Really depends on your particular flexibility issues, anthropometrics, experience, etc.
