Greg-
I forgot to ask this yesterday. What is the notion behind the 70%/75%/80% x 3 sets progression? I'm not questioning the programming, just curious as to the rationale behind it. thanks.

Peter -

Just another way to get in some more reps without being too taxing. I like it because it really forces the athlete to adjust to the weight each time and lift it appropriately, i.e. not over or under-lift.

Squat - 330 lbs

I'll fit in the ab work at home. I had to dig deep to get through the squats.

My form seemed horrid in the snatch and not much better in the C&J. I think this is because I'm still not totally comfortable doing these lifts. It's as if I'm more focused on not dropping the weight rather than lifting it.
