When it says power clean 3, 3, 3, 3, 3 is that done the same way as regular CF where you try to increase weight every set? If you don’t do the 3, 3, 3, 3, 3 the same as regular CF when do you try to go up in weight? Also can you explain deadlift 5RM?  Is that just one set of 5 or is it do as many sets of 5 until you reach your max weight possible for 5 reps. If these questions have already been answered, I apologize and please route me in the right direction.
Thanks, Brandy

There is nothing wrong with missing a weight or failing on a max attempt. I have been beaten by the weights many times. We actually keep score on this, somedays it is Weights-1, John-0 and the weights get the victory. Other days…a new PR and I get back to even with Weights-1, John-1.

But what if it is written 5×3? That means the program asks you to do 5 sets of 3 reps at the same weight across the board. Say my 3 RM power clean is 100 kilos and the program asks you to do 5 sets of 3 reps at 100 kilos. So do the same work up, skill transfer with the bar and some reps at various weights building up to 100 kilos and go for it. Usually, you will see the notation Set New PR or add 2.5 lbs, that means you should try to do your 5 sets of 3 reps at a new PR, so if my old PR was 100 kilos and it says to set a new PR, then I would complete all 5 sets at 101.25 kilos.
