Don’t mistake the movement for the goal!

With an athlete whose movement is not as mature (strong) break it down to the parts that are still in line with the goal. In this case it’s braking in good position, to set up powerful change of direction.

In the case of a hang clean the goal is to develop explosive hips! If an athlete has mobility challenges maybe a kettlebell swing or trap bar with triple extension is more appropriate (AND SAFER).

As the athlete progresses to doing what is thought of as a traditional high catch hang clean keep in mind the goal! Powerful hips!

So maybe all your athletes won’t do a a hang squat clean, but if you have an athlete who can do it safely and still hits triple extension, let them! Remember the goal! You’re making them a better athlete, who supplements with weights, not the reverse!!
