Strength/Skill – 15 minutes
Clean Pull Video
Complete 5 sets of 3 reps of the clean pull (does not have to be touch n go)
*Between each set, complete 5-10 Handstand pushups of ANY variation (no abmat, stacked abmats, at a deficit, off a box OR KB/dumbbell push press (coaches will demo)
*Clean pull weight – use anywhere between 90-110% of your 1 rep max clean.
*If you do not your approximate 1 rep clean, then build to a weight that is uncomfortable that you are still able to manage proper form (triple extension – coaches will explain)
Purpose: The clean pull is a basic and important exercise for training the pull/extension of the clean in terms of strength, speed, power, posture and balance. You should be able to manage heavier weights than in your normal clean, which allows the development of strength to push weights in the clean. (watch vid above if needed)
*Coaches please give athletes a few minutes to work up in weight
