Weightlifting complex – 3 power cleans + 2 hang cleans + 1 squat clean

Big time complex. Lot’s of pulling off the floor. So really warm up that posterior chain before getting into this one. Really try to engage the big movers in all 3 of these lifts. When you complete a movement like a deadlift, you should notice the weight distribution is very heavy in the heels as you finish the lift. The deadlift is the foundation of pulling a barbell off the ground. The speed of the bar might change but the fundamentals of the lift do not. Because the purpose is different, the setup changes and therefore more weight will be forward when you begin. But, as you pull the bar towards your hips, drive the weight into your heels and keep it in your heels until after triple extension. Once your hips have opened fully, only then can you come to your toes.

This workout is going to take some grit and determination. Scaling the weight appropriately will help you reach the intended stimulus. It should be heavy, but nothing over 75%. Because the barbell is so heavy, you should be going to singles right away, but it shouldn’t be so heavy that it takes you too long between reps. Work hard each minute of this one and use the clock to guide your rest. Being conscious of breaks between reps will go a long way towards keeping you on track.
