Clean Pulls


Increase weight ea set

Video courtesy of Catalyst Athletics.  Our second time hitting Clean Pulls this cycle.  The sets drop to 3, so goal is to go heavier than the 5X5 week.  Again, we’re using this to help strengthen our first pull in our cleans.  Don’t forget to get a hip hop at the top when you VIOLENTLY extend the hips.

A nice little progressive up and down the mountain of pull up and core movements!  Manageable chunks is the key to success today.
