11.5 Wallballs question
1. I move to the ball, pick it up, clean it to the rack position, squat the ball, rise and toss it up for the first rep being counted as soon as it hits the proper height target.


2. I move to the ball, squat deeply, pick up the ball, rise and toss...

Q: Do I have to clean the ball before commencing the first rep?

Thank you.

EDIT: from [url][/url] SFW
In the Wall ball, the medicine ball must be taken from the bottom of a squat, hip crease below knee, and thrown to hit the specified target. Using an additional ball, box or other object to check for proper depth is not allowed. If the ball is not caught between reps, it must come to a full stop on the ground. Bouncing the ball off the floor is not permitted. The center of the ball must hit the target at or above the specified target height. If the ball hits low or does not hit the wall it is no rep. "

...that to me, means I can just move to the ball and squat and go. No need to clean it first.

That's how I heard it. No need to clean initially or on subsequent reps.
