Also, some handy workout nomenclature for your workout logs:
(CLN + FS + (PP x 3)) x 3 x 5
means do a clean into a front squat followed by a 3 push presses. Do this sequence 3 times, rest, then repeat for 5 rounds.

That's a cool complex. But based on your nomenclature, after doing the sequence 3 times and resting, wouldn't you then repeat it for 4 more rounds, not 5?
This would result in 5 total rounds, no?
