Mission: 1)Do you have enough range to keep you leg straight and reach down and grip the bar without rounding? This is a basic athlete’s range of motion. 2) Do you keep a braced spinal position and use it as a fulcrum to load your hips? Or do you use your abdominal musculature to flatten your back against the passive forces of your pelvis? It’s no wonder so many Oly athletes set up for the clean and snatch at the bottom eh?
