Anna - In my haste making fun of Jesse the other day, I forgot to say - Relax those hands as you're racking your cleans! Once your forearms are about vertical, that bar is pretty well set on your shoulders, and all you need to do is whip your elbows around into place. If your grip remains right, it will prevent that elbow speed (and typically position as well). That's why your elbows are down when you receive your cleans and why you're unstable and falling on your ass.

Greg, the volume of this strength cycle is already killing me. I've DNF all the workouts this week. Any particular reason for much more difficulty with this strength micro-cycle vs the oly cycle the last few weeks? Best, Jerry

FS - 195#, 205#, 215# SN P - 185# RJ - 205#, 175#
Greg Everett 2008-10-16
Jerry - This week has been an ass-kicker. The last 4-wk cycle was extremely low-volume, so it's a big adjustment between cycles. You may need to drop some sets here and there. That said, the volume will decrease somewhat over the next 3 weeks.
