Linda

I'm afraid to ask...I think I'm performing the Cleans wrong. When I last completed Linda I performed Hang Cleans. Is this wrong? Also, I do not get into a full squat position during my hang cleans, I guess I figured I really didn't need to. I just snao it up with a semi bend/squat. Please clarify what type of Clean I should be performing and should I be completing a full squat within each rep.

Thanks

Re: Linda

Bad news, George. The standard default for cleans, in Linda and otherwise, is a full squat clean unless stated otherwise in the WOD. If you are just starting out though, doing hang cleans isn't the end of the world - it's good practice for the 2nd pull and catch. Next time around, do full squat cleans, but go light and get the form and movement down. Get a-- to grass when doing your squat cleans unless you have an injury or reason that you can't get fully down. Good luck and stay fit!!
