Today we are dong CrossFit Total II a workout that counts toward your BTWB Olympic Lifts Fitness Level. This workout is structured like the CrossFit Total in that you have 3 attempts at a max effort. You must declare your attempts to your coach.
One of the most common mistakes we see with athletes going for a max effort clean is not meeting the bar when you receive it. When you lose connection with the bar it crashes on you and makes your lift way more difficult that it needs to be.
Check out today's Technique Tuesday video to see how to fix it. It's important to note that a squat clean is not required today or in most Olympic lifting scenarios. Power and split cleans are perfectly acceptable. Of course, you can eventually clean more if you learn to receive it in a squat, but for most CrossFitters, a heavy power clean gives you all the stimulus you need to develop power, speed and strength. Good luck!
