Fun with Lateral Burpees:
Today was an emphasis on the clean, specifically the power clean. This movement is essential to learn and improve as it’s integral to so many movements in CrossFit that we do. A good clean lays the foundation for progressing through so many other more advanced skills or movements, as it’s the easiest way to get weight from the ground up to a rack position to press or squat with it.
Attention: Watch this video on the power clean from Jon Gilson of Again Faster for some great tips on set-up, technique and coaching tips. Believe me all of us can take something valuable from this video to improve our clean:
Justin and Ashley (CF’ers from Central Washington) dropped in today for some cleans. Great to have them in and props to Justin for a 235 Squat Clean!
