So.... What's happening with the Jerks?

You will do a set of 3, then take the weight up for a set of 2, then up again for a single. You will repeat the process again for 2 more sets and try to work up to the heaviest single you can.

Thanks, should me sets of 3 get heavier as well, and she and of my triples or doubles be heavier than my first single?

If you feel good you can take those doubles and triples up each set as well. You will have to be the judge and try to make good lifts as you progress through the sets.

I know HS means working to a Heavy Single but is it ok if you PR?

It is okay to PR in these cycles during heavy singles.
