Video courtesy of Johnathan Miller.  We kick it off with our Clean Complex.  For this cycle, our complex will consist of one Power Clean, holding onto the bar and bringing it to the hang position (above the knee) and go into a Hang Squat Clean to equal 1 Rep.  The goal of this is to get you not only used to depending on explosive hip extension to move the weight, but the hang squat clean will force you to get SPEED under the bar to catch it at the bottom of the Clean.  The more effective we get with that piece, the more weight you can move in a Squat Clean (less distance to cover than a Power Clean).  In the Hang Squat Clean, i you find yourself still catching the bar high and then riding it down, drop your %s to where you can get to the bottom of the squat FAST!
