Re: rebounding hang cleans for speed and save grip

Lots of people sacrifice good form and technique for speed at comps

Doesn't mean you should but know the risks involved

Also for many of the athletes we see doing this the weight is nothing compared to their maxes or working weight.

For us mere mortals trying to do the same could result in some bad injuries because of how close the weight is to our mazes and our inability to "cheat" on the movement for speed.

I did Diane this week. 225 is almost 1/2 of my max but because of speed it turns into more of a squat vs a dead lift. I feel it in my back afterwards because the form and speed removes the correct motion I should use. When I slow down just a little bit more I feel a ton better because I maintain a proper form throughout it.
