Clean High Pull


Increase weight each set


Post heaviest weight used to Comments/LogWOD

Video courtesy of Technique WOD.  Watch up through the 4:30 mark for the info on high pulls.  These move is essential to teach you to get the most power out of the hips to get the bar as high as possible.  Why do we practice these?  So when we do our cleans, we will have the bar as high as we can, giving us time to get under the bar for either a power or full clean.  Also, do NOT start pulling with the arms until your hips, knees, and ankles are fully extended (triple extension).




For Time:

-Cash-in; 400M Run


-4 Rounds:

  7 Lateral Burpee Over Bar

  4 Power Cleans @ 70% of ending Clean High Pull

-Cash-out; 400M Run
