‘Hang’ In There!

Programming for Friday, November 8, 2013

Olympic lifts don’t always have to come from the ground. In fact, working from the hang position is a great way to drill your technique and get stronger.

WARMUP
Run/row 2 big laps + down/up dog
STRENGTH
Hang power clean 5.4.3.2.1
Behind the neck push press 2×5 3×3 5×1
CONDITIONING
2k Row
.
When we initiate our lifts from the hang, it forces us to focus on cultivating speed and explosiveness where it matters most — the hip extension. Use these hang cleans to practice forcefully opening those hips to drive the bar up. ‘Hang’ in there everyone — power cleans are a fantastic functional fitness exercise!
