Our clean variation this cycle will be the High Hang Clean.  I prefer you do the squat clean version, but if technique or flexibility are limiting you, you can land in the power position, and then complete a front squat.

Setup and Execution – Deadlift the bar up to a full standing position.  Keep the torso upright, core tight.  Keep the chest over the bar.  In a controlled motion, dip to the power position, then push through the feet to VIOLENTLY extend the hips (keeping the bar close to your body), and then pull yourself under the bar to catch it at the bottom of a Front Squat


For Time:

10 Power Cleans (135/95)

50 Air Squats

10 Front Squats (135/95)

50 Air Squats

10 Push Jerks (135/95)

50 Air Squats

10 Clusters (135/95)

You have a lot of squatting in this WOD, so make sure your form stays on point throughout.  The last thing you want is to get sloppy with form as you fatigue.  Even if it means slowing the pace a small bit, do so to make sure each and every squat is perfect.



Scaling Options:

Bar weight -> 115/80 -> 95/65 -> As needed


Cool Down:

Couch Stretch – 2 Min per side
