Default Receiving and recovering the clean.

Quite regulary I loose tension when I receive the clean. Do you guys have any recommended excercises to work on.

Today I went light and trained on meeting the bar at various hights. Felt really good.

Someone, somewhere suggested to me to do power cleans that are received just above parallel and fight to stop yourself dropping into a front squat. I found this worked great, especially as the volume went up and fatigue crept in.

Power cleans can definitely be helpful. This article might give you some ideas as well - http://www.cathletics.com/articles/a...?articleID=122
