The Need for Speed
The Cal Strength Olympic Lifting Team is feeling the need for speed! The Monday workout regimen is designed to work on their technique and speed transitioning under the bar. The team opens the practice with some work on the high boards. Starting from position 1 eliminates the pull, forcing them to transition under the bar and get into the receiving position faster. Hanging their toes off the boards forces them to stay on their heels throughout the lift. Next, the team works on cleans off the blocks, and finishes it up with 3 front squats and a jerk.
