WORKOUT 3 SHANKLE COMPLEX
- 3 Clean Pulls
- 1 Clean
- 2 Jerks
Barbell complexes are often used to train your weaknesses, getting an athlete ready to tackle their weak movements by ‘warming up’ with their strong ones.
A good complex usually involves multiple rounds of three or more lifts all without dropping the bar.
“Those that have trouble succeeding on jerks after a difficult clean, or those who have good jerk technique with moderate weights which breaks down with heavy weights seem to get the most from this exercise,” said Glenn Pendlay.
