|Muscle Clean description from Catalyst Athletics:|
In the muscle clean the bar is pulled as it would be in the clean, but the athlete continues lifting it to the rack position without re-bending the knees. The movement can be helpful as a strength exercise to improve the lifter’s power. It can also be helpful to correct crashing of the bar on the shoulders by allowing the athlete to practice racking in a more controlled manner and without the distractions of surrounding movements.
Strength: Muscle Clean practice
WOD: Complete 3 rounds:
1 Muscle Clean then a Push Press...2 Muscle Cleans then 2 Push Presses...3 Muscle Cleans then 3 Push Presses and so on until you can not complete the progression without putting the bar down.
*Once you fail, rest 3 minutes, adjust your weight if you went too heavy or too light, and go again.
**Each muscle clean must start on the ground.
***This is not on the minute, it is straight through till you put the bar down
