I am doing Crossfit for couple monthes and still can't manage to always find a good weight for training according to weight exercises.
For instance, I can do deadlifts with 60 kg and front squat with 50 kg, but thrusters with only 40 kgs, while won't be able to do power snatch even with 40 kgs.
Recently, my coach adviced me to take 30 kg on thrusters since "that's an intensive exercise, not strength exercise; better take less weight, but do more reps".
So, the question is what is an expected relative weights table? How do you know which weight to take for every exercise except for remembering "my" value for every exercise and reps number. Trying different weights doesn't work well, because this value changes with time and progress.
As for me, I currently use then next "formula" (of course, approximately):
x * reps coefficient * exercise coefficient
x is currently 60 kg (actually 1 RM Deadlift) and it changes while I progress.
Reps in round Coefficient 1-2 1.0 (doesn't change) 3-6 0.9 (-10%) 7-10 0.75 (-25%) 11+ 0.5 (-50%) Exercise Coefficient Deadlift 1.0 (doesn't change) FS, BS 0.8 (-20%) Squat clean 0.75 (-25%) Pushes / Jerks 0.75 (-25%) Power clean 0.7 (-30%) Thruster 0.7 (-30%) OH squat 0.6 (-40%) Power snatch 0.5 (-50%)
So, if I see "xxx rounds, 5 rep each, power cleans", I currently take 60 * 0.9 * 0.7 ~= 35-40 kg, according to my physical and mental state, and WOD intensity / rounds count. Or when I see "Power snatch 3 reps EMOM", I would take 60 * 0.5 * 0.9 ~= 25-30 kg.
When I manage to make deadlifts with 70 kg, I will recalculate weights for all other exercises. I will also increase coefficient if I improve my technique - for instance, recently power snatch coefficient was 0.35, because I couldn't do it very well.
Of course, it is very individual, but what are the general averages and ideas?
What weight are you taking for every exercise? I would also be happy to use this information to understand which exercises I am bad at, and what should I work on more often.
