Video courtesy of Catalyst Athletics.  Watch from 0:00-0:24 for the Complex.  This cycle, our Clean Complex will consist of a Clean High Pull (elbows high), returning the bar to the ground, and performing a Power Clean, then taking the bar to the hang position, and performing a Hang Squat Clean.  Hold onto the bar throughout the complex.  Make sure you end with a Jerk at the end of each set (not end of each rep).


3 Rounds For Time:

15 Hang Power Cleans (135/95)

15 Lateral Barbell Burpees

15 Pull Ups

Keeping a good hook grip should allow you to go unbroken on the hang power cleans, and save some grip for the pull ups.


Scaling Options:

Bar weight -> 115/80 ->95/65 -> as needed (or 155/110 for Elite)

Lateral BB Burpees -> burpee+ step over bar

Pull Ups -> Buddha Pull Ups (or Chest 2 Bar for Elite)
