Knees out! Elbows up! Heels! These are a few of many exclamations you can expect to hear tomorrow as we work on the clean, with a little extra emphasis on the catch. After all, the catch position for the clean is really just a front squat. Once we get into working sets we’ll be doing 3 front squats for every clean, getting a good, low, full range of motion at the bottom and driving up out of it. Although we definitely want you working with some weight to get a feel for the movement, technique is the priority tomorrow, not going heavy. This is also going to give us a chance to use our newly completed lifting platforms. Thanks Michael.
