“The Clean”
Squat clean aka Full Clean aka Clean = start from the floor, catch in a full squat.
Hang clean = start from the hang position (above or below the knees), catch in the full squat position.
Power clean = start from the floor, catch in a quarter or half squat position aka the power position.
Hang power clean = start from the hang position above or below the knees, catch in the quarter or half squat.
“Hang” describes where you start.
“Power” describes where you catch.
We will be working on our Cleans as a skill in class. There are so many kinds of cleans which can be so useful in our workouts. Cleaning a Med ball is very different then a BB or a kettlebell. Learning the clean with different objects adds a load of diversity to your workouts.

    So 2 questions:

    A) Do we get to analyze your hang clean form and post comments?

    B) Now that you’ve taken over the blog postings for a while, does this mean we have to see pictures of you in every post?

    A)You can analyze it if you want. But I put it on the CF board last week…I’m still recovering from that!
    B)Yup! At lest I keep my clothes on! Be thankful!
