Clean Pulls


Increase weight ea set

Video courtesy of Catalyst Athletics.  Our third time hitting Clean Pulls this cycle.  The reps drop to 3, so goal is to go heavier than the 3X5 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.
