Eric Egan 1 | 2009-09-01
are the Snatch balance %`s based off of how much we can snatch or Snatch balance?

PC+2clean: 110x2,120x3 snbal: 80x2,85x1,90x1,95x1 pp: 125x5x3,125x4x2 Went in thinking I would have to scale but only ended up dropping the last rep off the last two PP's.
Greg Everett 3 | 2009-09-01
Eric - either one since they should be pretty similar. If your snatch balance is more than your snatch, base the percentage off that.

Hello. At the Power clean + 2 clean, is the % based on powerclean or clean 1RM? Thank you
Steve Pan 10 | 2012-09-03
It will be off of your best power clean.
dan 11 | 2014-03-19
is the push press based off your max jerk?
Steve Pan 12 | 2014-03-19
Dan - % will be based off of your best push press. If you don't have a max push press you will have to feel out an appropriate weight.
