Gitty-up time!

AMRAP in 10min
10 Shoot-throughs
5 Turkish Getups

Clean Lesson: One common violation in the clean is pulling to early with the arms, as shown below. Trying to ‘muscle’ the bar up with your arms will limit your ability to clean a maximal load. Adding more weight to your clean will not improve it. You must practice this with lower weights to burn it into your muscle memory.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Below, Darrell is keeping his arms more straight on the pull
