Coaching the clean

Step 7 - From bar below knees move to mid-thigh

From a position of bar below the knees, the player moves the bar up to a mid-thigh position and then completes a JUMP, CATCH and SQUAT.

Figure 8. From a below knees hang position, the player moves the bar to a mid-thigh position and then extends to jump, catch and ¼ squat.

When the player can successfully complete the movement from the bar below the knees to a ¼ squat position, he or she then progresses to complete the sequence as one movement. Note in the accompanying video that the player moves slowly at first from a bar below the knees position to a mid-thigh position and then explosively extends the legs, jumps and catches the bar in a deep squat position.
