Re: Best way to "fit" power cleans into a 531 strength + crossfit wod program

That's where I'm coming from with that idea, thoughts?
That's where I am at, in reality though it's because I always used front squats on recovery days. I'm throwing in front squats for 5x3 once a week and finding that they are going to progress well past my meager clean.
