Workouts like 21.4 (the heavy barbell complex) are tests, and we prepare for those test with workouts like this. These 7 sets of 5 reps are the “studying” that preps you for the next test, whether that’s in the Open or in a compare to heavy day here at The Hut. The intention is that the load stays manageable enough that you can not only hear the cues your coaches give you, but can actually put them into practice. There is a point when you have a load on the bar that is doable, but is too heavy to make adjustments in form and technique. So, use today to become more consistent in finding a proper and powerful hang position, to become more skilled in the timing of the core to extremity nature of the hang squat clean, and to get quicker at dropping under the bar. Improvements in these areas will no doubt come in handy for your next test!
