Like a lot of people, landing too wide on the third pull has become a problem for Alex and has limited him from reaching his potential at current strength/speed. We implemented drills like scarecrow cleans and cleans w/ no jump (change of foot position) to help dial in movement and force speed under the bar. He’s seeing great improvements by addressing these in a non-fatigued state. With skill days, we’ve found he responds better to less overall work and just taking the time to work through the elements in a given training session.
