Key Tips

  1. Save forearms
  2. Overhand grip on the bar
  3. Tight kipping swing
  4. Don’t pull on the bar, relax, use your core, hang from the shoulder.
  5. Breathe!


Hang clean

  • Kb swing with Dumbell
  • Catch up power position to reduce range and save forearms
  • Explosive push press (use hips)
  • Row- start every round aggressive- 5-6 pumps of the legs to get the erg going then settle into your pace
  • Break the toes to bar early- No no Reps !!
