Click on names to access video demos of each form of the clean.
Use a challenging weight, practice and maintain good form.
Sarah catches in a high "Power" Clean position. Chloe’s hair demonstrates the speed at which you need to drop, or pull, yourself under the bar for the catch. Amanda has a great deep squat catch on her Squat Cleans with nice, high elbows and the bar rolled back into her fingertips in the racked position.
Patty, like everyone learning the clean, pulls early, bending her elbows before they need to, using her arm muscles to pull the bar up rather than let it be suspended by momentum from her extension. She improved with practice and had less and less arm pull but instead allowed her shoulder shrug and hip extension to put momentum on the bar to lift it and get it weightless. At the end her arm bend was from her pulling herself down under the bar for the catch.
3 Rounds of:
Wall Ball, 20/15 lb. ball, 8 ft. target. (Max Reps in 1 minute)
Sumo Deadlift High-pull, 75/55 lbs. (Max Reps in 1 minute)

75/55 lbs. (Max Reps in 1 minute)

In this workout you move from each of five stations after a
minute.The clock does not reset or stop between exercises. This is a
five-minute round from which a one-minute break is allowed before
repeating. On call of "rotate", the athletes must move to next station
immediately for best score. One point is given for each rep, except on
the rower where each calorie is one point. All points are tallied at
the end of all 3 rounds for a total score.
