Hang squat cleans

“There is simply no other exercise, and certainly no machine, that produces the level of central nervous system activity, improved balance and coordination, skeletal loading and bone density enhancement, muscular stimulation and growth, connective tissue stress and strength, psychological demand and toughness, and overall systemic conditioning than the correctly performed full squat.” ~Rip

    Hahaha! Yeah, well. I think that quote still applies to the front squat. πŸ™‚ Not to mention we are looking to increase those numbers on squat cleans at the completion of this particular Wendler Cycle.

    paul, i am admittedly scared of a lot of things, but squats aren’t one of them (back or front ; )

    Don’t you worry, Wayne! Back squats will reappear soon enough. There is method to my madness I assure you. πŸ™‚ Speaking of cherry picker alert- I saw you signed up for class on Turkey Day and then that morning your name magically disappeared. Did you take a look and decide oh hell no? Hahaha!

    Just giving you a hard time Wayne….after giving it some thought, I almost wish I had looked at the WOD before coming too…..at least I would have been more mentally prepared for the ass kicking I got!
