The medicine-ball clean builds on the deadlift and the sumo deadlift high pull. Unique to the medicine-ball clean is the pull-under, which allows the athlete to bring the object to a position of support (the front rack position).

OTM for 20:00 Minutes
Odd Min: Movement 1
Even Min: Movement 2
“Goat” is CrossFit slang for a movement that challenges us. Examples: Double unders, Ring Dips, Overhead Squats. These are the best days to turn perceived “weaknesses” into “strengths.” No better way to do that than today.

We don’t improve our technique with a high heart rate–that’s what we refer to as “training”. Today is geared towards “practice,” dialing in our mechanics with a controlled heart rate. As an example, to improve the technique of double unders, we want to practice at a low-intensity where we can really focus on the mechanics of the hands and the timing of the jump.

When we couple “training” with “practice” throughout the week in the right doses, we set ourselves on the fast track to results. Choose two “Goats” to work on, and we’ll alternate between them on each minute. Coaches will have great suggestions in class.
