3 x 5 (add 5 lbs to last workout)
Muscle Clean/Push Press
***You will complete one muscle clean and a push press, then 2 muscle cleans and 2 push presses, then 3 muscle cleans and 3 push presses…you will complete this pattern until you fail and have to put the bar down. Once you have put the bar down, you will rest 3 minutes.
***Second attempt you will decide if you went too heavy or too light and you will try again!!! Pick a new weight (heavier or lighter) and complete one muscle clean and one push press, then 2 muscle cleans and 2 push press and so on until you fail and have to drop the bar…Then Rest 3 minutes.
***Third attempt will follow the same pattern…are you now ready to add some weight or did you still go too heavy on the 2nd attempt.
***Remember…these are MUSCLE CLEANS…there should not be any re dipping of the hips when receiving the bar. We are thinking about a big jump/shrug and full hip extension with FAST elbows BUT no re bending of the knees!!! This is a different movement than we are used to!!! Your trainer will make sure you are getting the most out of this move that you can!!!!
