Focus 1: Cleans (esp. Hang Power Cleans)
Focus 2: Push Jerk
Workout: DB Cleans, Shoulder-to-Overhead (S2OH), and Side Steps over the Box


This coming Saturday’s class will focus on Cleans, with some extra time devoted to the Push Jerk. This will include:

– Practical review of the Clean movement, focusing primarily on the Hang Power Clean, and including lifts with just the bar and with added weight;
– Practical review of the Push Jerk, and comparing the difference between a Push Press and Push Jerk;
– Appropriate scaling for both strength and met-con based classes involving the Clean;
– Translating technique for a barbell Clean into Cleans using Dumbbells; and,
– Scaling and substitution options for the class workout, including how and when to choose a scaling/sub option;


To review before class, we highly recommend checking out the following descriptions and demo videos from Catalyst Athletics:
