The Fittest Of The Fit

 In WOD

WOD 8/13/12

15 minutes Tall Clean Practice

The tall clean is the third “pull” of the clean, when the athlete is pulling themselves under the bar. It begins with the lifter standing tall with no bend in the knees; some coaches will start the movement with flat feet and others on the toes. From this tall position, the lifter begins transitioning the feet from the pulling to receiving positions while pulling under the bar aggressively to receive it in the full front squat position.  The focus is speed under bar, using light weights.
