1 of Joe's 27 squat cleans at last weekend's Garage Games New England Finals

Squat cleans and ring dips.  A pair of movements that require a relatively higher degree of technique, and both are detrimental to an athlete’s ability to complete the other.  Spending a significant amount of time in a loaded front rack position will always negatively impact upper body dominant gymnastics movements.  That’s probably why they’re paired together so often, and a big part of what makes Elizabeth such a great benchmark.  Efficient movement is a must for a fast finish this Friday.

  1. 11:25 at 65# and a red band. i had major squat clean issues today – my back already hurts!

    many congrats to joe and erika for beasting it. so proud of you guys!

    also, my sister is running marathon #6 this weekend in philly with a goal of breaking 3 hours (with her, that means she won’t be satisfied unless it’s closer to 2:50) so i will be there cheering her on. everyone channel super fast marathon endurance crazy energy sunday morning for her!

  2. 8:21 at 25 kg (55lbs) and 2 red bands for round 1, then 1 red band…I realized I over scaled on round 1 and dropped a band. (Should use more weight next time too.)

  3. 12:28@110#

    Didn’t trust my squat cleans enough to go Rx. There is always next time. Thanks for the great pointer on the cleans Josh. Great class 6pm’ers.

    Thanks to Joe for leaving the clock on.
    And thanks to the 5… and 6pm for the support.
    I’m going to say there’s room for improvement on this one- well done everyone!
