Skill

EMOM for 10 Minutes

1 Squat Clean

Work up to a moderate to strong effort squat clean.   Start by working through the movement with an empty bar bell and practice catching the bar with your elbows high and chest up.  As you get comfortable with the movement ride the bar down into the bottom of your squat and then stand up. After you have warmed up to a light to moderate weight perform 1 repetition every minute for 10 minutes. Increase only if you are successful with the mechanics of the lift and consistent with every repetition.

Workout notes: This workout is a five round couplet of using drop sets.  The rep scheme decreases in each round. With drop sets the goal is to maintain intensity through each round. When you perform front squats remember to keep your chest upright and elbows up throughout your full range of motion.  You are not required to go unbroken of course but choose a weight with which you can perform each round in at least one or two sets.
