I think most of us can agree that using the power clean can be a great tool for developing an explosive football and aggressive player. Now it comes down to proper application of the exercise. Anyone care to share their thoughts on the validity or stupidity of this particular example in the video? I sure wouldn't say it is optimal, but I feel it is relevant to football specific training.

If they posted that as CFFB WOD, I would do it - just not at those weights. I can't clean that much for reps. It looks like a brutal workout. I don't play football so I have no opinion of the carryover, except that you have some serious work capacity if you can giterdun. I would also allow ample recovery time after this WOD, and eat like a pig.

I don’t think you can develop an explosive football player or anything else for that matter. They either are or aren’t. I know for a fact that you can’t teach aggressiveness. You can condition a player and I suppose power cleans are fine although plenty of great football players never power clean.

I still stand by this. If somone could really and I mean really up the explosiveness of an athlete they would be on the payroll of some NFL team making millions upon millions. All trainers overstate their their BS.

Or most people that teach football players to power clean can't teach them how to do it properly.

Too many reps in my opinion. I mean 2 reps every 60 second for 50 minutes? What are they trying to do? Injury the players? This must be some @fit thing.
