1 Power Clean

1 Pausing Push Jerk

*Pause 2 second in the catch postion of the 1st clean and the 1st jerk.

– Repeat from last week but building slightly.

– We’ll start our sets at 5% higher and finish 5% higher.

– Percentages still meant to be on the lighter side in order to ensure good quality movement.

– Pauses in the catch of the first clean and the catch of the first jerk are to help focus get receiving the bar with the knees out and hips back.

– We often see athletes with the knees pushed out forward of the toes and the hips tucked slightly forward in the recieving position of both the clean and the jerk. This is something we want avoid in our lifts.

– Let’s video our lifts today so that we can watch back and see what our landings look like.
