RX 2

New Cycle Starts Today
Clean & Jerk
5 Sets of 1
Start day one of cycle at 85% of your 1RM C&J. Level load across all sets (same Weight on the bar for each of the 5 singles, not including warm up sets).
Linear progression each week. Target a 10LB increase each week if singles are above 225lb Target 5LB increase each week if singles are below 225lb.
You must make 4/5 lifts to increase weight next week.

*Programming notes:
What this all means is that you need to build to 85% of your current 1RM and then begin your 5 sets of 1 rep. As long as you make 4 out of 5 lifts next week you can increase your load by either 5 or 10 lbs. Follow this rule each week. If you miss 2 or more lifts don't worry just attempt the same weight the following week.
This cycle will last 5 weeks and should lead to some really good skill building in the first few weeks and prepare you as the loads increase later in the cycle. Yes the first few weeks may seem a little light, please refrain from adding more weight, just stick to the cycle and you will be pleased with the outcome.
In order to follow any weightlifting cycle it is imperative that you keep track of the loads that you use each week. That way you know what your goal weight will be days before you will be lifting. In this case you will know today after you lift what weight you will be lifting next week, as long as you remember or write it down or something. So please pay attention athletes that have followed these cycles almost always set new personal records during the testing period at the end of the cycle.

Option 1
21, 15, 9 of:
Deadlifts 135-155Men/95-110Ladies
Front Squats
Power Cleans
