“If I had one wish for my children, it would be that each of them would reach for goals that have meaning for them as individuals.”- Lillian Carter – The mother of 39th president of the United States, Jimmy Carter.

Cec’s first time doing a Hang Power Clean. Pretty good movement. The clean and the jerk are two of the most difficult movement patterns for new members to learn. It is something you practice with a light weight first time out, definitely not a movement you look for your 1 rep max. We encouraged those being introduced to the hang power clean to practice 10 reps with a bar for seven sets. Loosening your grip and allow the bar to roll to your fingertips will help in allowing the elbows to raise higher and create a “shelf” on the shoulders to support the bar.
