Grip and Rip
On a 15:00 clock:
Build up to a Heavy Set of 5 Squat Cleans
12 Power Cleans @ 185/135
21 Air Squats
Today we have a two part adventure focused almost entirely on the clean. We’re going to build to a heavy 5 on the squat clean today, and our focus should be sound mechanics through all 5 reps each set. For our conditioning piece, we have some heavy power cleans paired with air squats. This may seem simple enough, but the air squat will SIGNIFICANTLY impact the power clean. Focus on a strong shrug to move that bar so you don’t have to squat as low or resort to starfish power on that clean. We should choose a load today that would be a challenging set of 3-5 touch and go reps, and we should strive to cycle the bar today since we’ll only be working for 6 minutes. Repeating sets of 3-6 on that power clean will be the goal for today and then cruising through 21 air squats to get back on the bar.
