Snatch pulls/clean pulls
Coach, when you give percentages for the snatch pull and the clean pull, what does 100% represent? Is it the max weight you can lift to a triple extension position -- sort of a faster/higher deadlift with a hook grip instead of an over/under grip?
2 Pos snatch and C&J
I have a question about the 2 pos snatch: 1 hang (mid thigh) 1 floor. work up to 50%x2x2, 55%x2x2, 60%x2x2 Does 2x2 mean 1 hang, 1 floor(2 total)-- for 2 sets? or 2x2 mean (1hang, 1 floor)x2 (4 total)for 2 sets? Similarly, For clean and jerk
Another question Coach. On Saturday heavy singles, if I do new pr, in next week percentages are based on the new pr, or the previous one?

1. Snatch: work up to (50%x2, 55%x2, 60%x2) 3 wave training.
Coach B - I've been following the Oly lifting since January '14, and seen some gains in all aspects. I'm about to start this week coming - but could you please explain the following - 1. Snatch: work up to (50%x2, 55%x2, 60%x2) 3 wave training.
Hey Coach B. Crossfit-er introducing legitimate OLY work here. Starting the 12 week program. Does "Chins" refer to chin-ups exclusively, or any form of pull-up? Thanks in advance
This is probably a simple question but when you list "100 abs" as part of the days work, what does that mean? Thanks.
Snatch pulls & clean pulls
Coach B, on both the snatch and clean pulls, how high should we come up the body? I've seen Chinese lifters come to a height where the elbows are high and wide, and knees are bending, similary for the clean. Thanks in advance, Stu
Shooters choice
