For something like muscle snatch that I havn't yet found a max for, should I estimate a max and just make sure the weights I use are managable?
Greg Everett 2 | 2009-09-02
Brett - Generally yes, but just go ahead and do a max MS today to get a baseline. Then do the sets following that.

When it says 2sets do they really mean reps? Also if none is stated and it only says 65%x5 is that reps?
Steve Pan 9 | 2013-07-05
It says sets for the 3-position cleans. A 3-position clean will count as a single set. For the Muscle snatches that will be the reps for each of those sets. So 5 reps at 65%, 4 reps at 65%, and 2 sets of 3 reps at 70%. Check the about the program section at the left for information on the notation.
