Rest Day


Here's a "Keep It Close" Clean image. Don't bounce the bar out in front of you. Also, don't be scared to pull it close.


There is a misnomer that lifters must have a long,
over exaggerated second pull when snatching and cleaning. I like to
refer to the second pull more as a pop or snap of the hips and traps
that is so extremely violent that it causes
the bar to generate speed through the middle and become weightless for a
split second. During that split second, it is your responsibility to
get your body down and around the bar before it (the bar) beats you
down. This picture is worth a thousand words, and should be burnt into
your memory. You must live and breathe to hit that position with the
same intensity 100% of the time. Remember, you control the bar, it
doesn't control you!
