Coaching Tips: Finish the first round of cleans in as few sets as possible. Make sure you are using the hook grip! Pace this so that you can control the intensity on the burpees. Slow down on the burpees if you need more rest before the next set of cleans. Speed up if the cleans are ‘easy’. Make sure you are finishing the cleans with an open hip and elbows in front of the bar. If the weight is ‘light’ for you, go ahead and muscle clean the bar.
