4 MEET WITH THE BAR
Ever found yourself pulling the bar so high and diving under the bar so fast that the bar comes crashing down onto your shoulders and crumbles you into a ball? Timing is very important, meeting with the bar just below parallel and “catching the bounce” out of the squat is essential to coming out of a heavy clean with ease.

- Hang Cleans,
- Block Cleans and
- Semi-Power Cleans (catching halfway and then squatting all the way down)
Can all improve that timing for heavier weights.
