Coaching the clean

Step 5 - Modified hang power clean and then move into deeper squat

The next step is to repeat the previous sequence into a modified hang power clean and then to squat into a deeper squat.

With the bar at waist level, instruct the player to "straighten the back, bend the knees only, jump and catch and stay in a ¼ squat position – and then move into a deep squat.’’

Figure 6. The player has descended into a deep squat position from a modified hang power clean. Note the player’s back is strong and elbows are pointing forward.

The next step is to practice the above movement but performing the transition into a deeper squat in a more dynamic movement. The player should repeat numerous repetitions at this step until he or she is competent at completing the sequence efficiently.
