I'm just starting up with the beginner program from Greg's book and I see that tomorrow's WOD has a similar prescription: is 105% for the snatch pull in this case referring to one's snatch 1RM? Just thought it would be worth asking, since in the beginner program, Greg calls for a 105% snatch deadlift; does the 105% in this case refer to my 1RM snatch as well? Sorry if this is obvious :-S
Cheers!!!

Yes, the % is of your max snatch. Normally I note that, I just forgot this time.

Thanks Greg! Have another question. Since I consider myself a beginner at weightlifting, and since that also means my 1RM snatch is still pretty low, should I be concerned by the fact that a 105% snatch dealift for 2 sets of 2 reps (as per the beginner program in your book) feels very easy? Is this by design? I'm new to weightlifing per say, but not to the iron game, so my deadlift is "decent", at least by the standards of my weightlifting prowess... Suggestions?

BTW, your book SERIOUSLY rocks!!!!

You can adjust the weight up as necessary. However, the idea is to strengthen the positions and movements specific to the associated classic lift - so the weight should never exceed your ability to lift it correctly.
