doing dead lifts for the past cpl months have really helped my hang cleans
hang cleans + push press
hate that shit. Do you do it in 1 motion, clean to press, or separate?
the clean and jerk are 2 distinct motions
I work them into my routine every few weeks.
I used to do them twice a week when I played football because it was great for getting more explosive. Now, I just like them because they make me sweat a lot.
I love em. I prefer to do them over power cleans.
i like to mix them in
Hang cleans, power cleans, hang snatch, power snatch, etc, whatever I feel like doing.
any form of olympic lift is my favorite exercise
Amen my olympic lifting brothers!
theyre the most fun to do and have given me the best results in nearly every area.
I just started and right now i'm just sticking to the full movements
Have you done Power Snatch into OH squat?
<3 hang cleans but I'm a little apprehensive about trying snatches and the different variations.
What's your rep range when you do cleans and snatches?
isnt that just full snatch?
2-3 reps for working sets
The only thing I'm concerned about with snatches is my arm not staying locked, or having it give out and then the bar goes flying.
Is this a realistic concern?
That's what it sounds like
yea, its good to find a gym with platforms
awesome to build the traps
that shit is impossible for me
i usually do hang cleans 5x5 @185 with straps
traps are coming in nicely
can't wait to do these olympic lifts again after finishing up my routine. they're tiring as hell but feels so good after. i did a deadlift to hang clean to push press every few weeks. usually just deadlift to push press every week.
I want to get back doing clean and jerks so bad, but they always totally fuck up my shoulders (I have had previous injuries). It seems to be moving the bar from the top position on my chest to my chin (just a few inches) that does it. I do strict military presses all the time, but I only lower the bar to my chin (my elbows go just below the 90 degree mark) and press it back up. I get no pain in my shoulders doing them, so .
im guessing cleans would work best on back day?
