Clean PULL from blocks
CLEAN PULL from the blocks is one of the best exercises for the simultaneous development of technical elements of the power position and strength. The recommended height of the blocks is a barbell below the knees. When the barbell is placed above the knee level, there is a risk of pulling and slipping through the power position. In this case, this exercise can even ruin the technique. Since the athlete has to work on the shortened amplitude of the movement, it is important to apply much more starting force and develop more power during the speed up. In the starting position, it is important to control the tension of the lower back and to spread the knees aside. CLEAN PULL from the blocks is a great exercise for the preparatory period when there is an opportunity to perform a high volume with large weights.
