Jana demonstrates the barbell lifts of DT. The deadlift has a good set position and open hips at the top. The hang power clean keeps an upright chest and straight arms as she initiates the bar to travel down to above the knees before reversing direction and generating momentum in an explosive upward shrug. Note the triple extension in her hang clean and that the arms have bent only after the knees and hips and ankles have extended. This is outstanding. The hang clean finishes with high elbows. The push jerk starts with the elbows dropping towards the floor (but in front of the bar) as she dips vertically and then drives upwards to a landing back in the 1/4 squat (not shown) before standing up and locking out fully overhead. Great job Jana!
