A 50% lift generally looks very different from a 90% effort. So drilling that form isn't always helpful. I'm thinking 70-80% range with the occasional 90% day.
I think a 70-80% day as his second day is certainly a good idea...when he gets a little more experience. I definitely agree that a 50% lift looks FAR different than a 90% lift, but in doing the CAT program he'll eventually work up to heavier percents, so he'll get technique work at high percents there. The lower day is more for just drilling cues into your mind.
If he can handle his second day being 70% then I definitely think it's a good idea.
