Greg, I just started this cycle yesterday and have a couple of questions: 1. Was the power clean weight today a percentage of our power clean 1RM or our clean 1RM? 2. Was the ohs weight today a percentage of our ohs 1RM or our snatch 1RM? 3. Would you like me to post results to comments or leave comments for questions and concerns? Thank you, Thommy

Thommy - 1. The percentage should be from your best power clean. 2. The percentage should be from your best OHS. 3. You can post results in the comments and also any questions/concerns you have. Good luck with training!

Can you explain the x 3 x 5 please? Is it 3 sets of 5 reps, or no? Thanks!
Steve Pan 5 | 2013-06-03
Jay - The notation is described in the program help section to the right. 65%x3x5 would indicate 5 sets of 3 reps at 65% of your best.

What does "1-arm KB swing/arm" mean? Alternate arms or both arms at the same time?
Steve Pan 7 | 2014-06-23
Steve - It should be 5 1-arm kettle bell swings per arm. You can alternate, or do 5 one each arm.

For the kb work. What weight kb is prescribed? Also, is it 5 rounds for time or 5-5-5 then rest before next set?
Steve Pan 10 | 2014-08-20
Alec - There is no prescribed weight, you will have to feel out a weight that is appropriate for those reps. It is five rounds with no rest through that sequence. Five of each exercise five times through.
