This may be standard practice but Coach Valentine had me do a clean, front squat & jerk progression, and it was very beneficial. You clean, recover (i.e., stand up and adjust your feet), then front squat, recover, then jerk, then recover. Amazingly tiring but I found that it helped emphasize the squat portion of the clean where I tend not to squat very much. As Coach said, "if you're not going to squat on the clean, you're going to squat on the squat!"
