So you think YOU had a bad workout?

Matthias Steiner, defending Olympic Champion of Germany, drops a 432 lbs. snatch on his neck.

He managed to walk away but he was unable to continue in the competition.

Tall Clean Practice, 15 minutes

(Go for a 1RM, if technique is sound)

*A tall clean is what it sounds like.   It begins with the lifter standing tall with no bend in the knees.  From this position, the lifter shrugs and transitions the feet from the pulling to squatting positions while pulling under the bar aggressively to receive it.


3 rounds for time of:

7 Hang Squat Cleans @ 155/105#

21 Burpees

35 Double-Unders
