Ryan,

Some people choose a theoretical bodyweight that they can bench for ten reps. Using this theoretical bodyweight, they calculate the weights for the deadlift and clean to keep the ratios consistent. Use those weights all the way through. As David noted above, the 3-rep set does indeed feel as bad as the first set.

Here's an example for a theoretical 60kg bodyweight.
DL 90kg
Bench 60kg
clean 45kg
This is what I am using. My previous Linda was 28. When I get that faster (under 20?) I will increase the weight.
