power cleans versus trap bar jumps and percentage-based training versus

and your sex. There will also be questions describing your comfort level and
experience using Olympic weightlifting, velocity-based training and
percentage-based training. Following these demographic questions will be 5
case-based questions in which you will be asked to answer based on your own
opinion. The survey will take approximately 10-15 minutes.
