Coach's Notes

Most of today will be spent working on the Clean and Jerk. The CJ is one of the two olympic lifts that we see each week. When building to your heavy lifts focus on your technique and PRACTICE. You do not get better at technical movements without focusing during practice. Once everyone has done 7 singles in this movement we will switch gears towards our metabolic conditioning component today. This is a SPRINT but can only be a sprint if you've practiced both of these movements enough to move fast with them.
