Hey Greg,

So the workout is:
* Snatch - (65% x 2, 70% x 2, 75% x 1) x 3
* Clean & jerk - (65% x 2, 70% x 2, 75% x 1) x 3

Because Of the way it is written we are to:
snatch 65% x2x3, 70%x2 x3 and 75% x1x3
and the same for C&J?

Thanks in advance

Scott -

Do 65% x 2, 70% x 2, 75% x 1, and then repeat that series 2 more times.

Im new to olympic lifting and was curious about the percentage and what it is a percentage of? I just need a little guidence on how to do all these exercises to be honest with you and a good way to track my progress. If you could help me out that would be great.

Mr. Anderson,

Check out the "info" link above today's workout and read through that page. It should answer just about every question you've got. The "exercises" link at the very top of the page will show you the various movements as well.

Used 2 x 12.5kg dumbbells. Don't have a MS max, so guessed a bit.

DANG! Watch out Quinton "Rampage" Jackson!

Greg,

Can I use a single dumbbell for the metcon at 50% of my MS?

thanks
Greg Everett 9 | 2010-01-12
Cory -

Not really. If for some reason you can only use one dumbbell, get one that's about 25% of your 1rm MS and do 1 arm at a time.
Cory 10 | 2010-01-12
Greg-

After doing to work out today the question seems a little silly. I don't see a way with that weight that I would have been able to lift that weight with one arm in that part of a work out.

Snatch - (115 x 2, 125 x 2, 135 x 1) x 3
Clean & jerk - (145 x 2, 155 x 2, 165 x 1) x 3
4 sets; no rest:
6 DB muscle snatch (from below knees) - combined weight 90
6 box jumps
12 KTE

Almost killed me!

Thanks

Snatch - (61 x 2, 65 x 2, 70 x 1) x 3
Clean and jerk (75 x 2, 80 x 2, 86 x 2) x 3

Used combined weight of 60lbs for DB muscle snatch

Cory, should have been 50% of your max muscle snatch, not your snatch.
Johnny Davis 12 | 2010-01-12
Set PR's Saturday and did ok yesterday but really beat down today. Is it just me?
Daniel 13 | 2010-01-12

Leslie P 19 | 2010-01-12
numbers were a bit off. 75, 85, 95. Snatches felt so good that I did an extra set at 105.

Tried something new with the intercostals- taped my rib cage. Not exactly what was recommended, but it helped a lot.

Subbed the metcon- 15-12-9 OHS 60# and 28" box jumps. 6:41.

That just has "Rampage Jackson" written all over it.
