Squat Cleaning

Workout of the Day

Squat Clean 3, 3, 2, 2, 1, 1

Worked speed on the cleans today trying to improve acceleration through my second pull. The results were good—I was getting a ton of height on the bar. My best lift was 285 lb, missing 295 twice after that. On each of these misses the bar traveled plenty high enough to make the lift, I just wasn’t getting deep fast enough. From the video it looks like I tend to drop under the bar to a half squat then ride the bar down to full depth. Not sure how to work on this to drop all the way down initially, but if I want to make more weight this is what I’ll have to do. In any event, I feel great about how well I’m pulling the bar. Hopefully I’ll see similar strength in deadlifts tomorrow.
