Breaking Down the Clean

WOD
7 Rounds
: -increase the weight on each round (as much rest as you need betweeneach round)

- on your last power clean, keep the weight racked on your shoulders and perform the front squats
- the objective of this workout is max load

The Clean is a series of complex movements, involving a lot of coordination to put them all together and make one continuous, efficient lift from the ground.  Many people who came today have never done these movements, some haven't done them often.  We broke the Clean down into separate movements to learn the coordination and muscle memory of each segment.  Saw a lot of improvement and muscle memory learning happening through the course of the workout today.  Nice work everyone!

Amazing to realize this is the first time Carrie has ever cleaned a bar.  I think we have a natural Olympic lifter in our midst.
