I haven't had a lot of time in the past week to train.
The move is coming so fast and is the priority right now.
So when I do get some free time, it's Long Cycle Clean & Jerks.
Is this the perfect movement?
Could be, if your pressed for time.
Friday and today I simply set my timer for 20 minutes and, while focusing on technique first and foremost, I would bang out between 5-10 reps. I made sure to "rest" in the rack at 3-5 seconds to get used to being there.
I am having a much easier time finding my hip due to more hip flexor flexibility, and really just forcing myself into the correct position.
Friday session got a little rocky. I was getting more concerned with doing more reps rather than doing the reps right. My breathing was all out of whack, actually I had only a vague idea of what the proper breathing pattern was for this movement.
Luckily, I met Doug Sides last weekend at the RKC.
Doug is a certified AKC Coach form Rockford, IL. I shot him and e-mail, and I got a very complete, detailed explanation of what to do.
Today I did what Doug said, and it was unbelievable how much easier the bells went up.
I only did sets of 5 because I wanted them to be as near to perfect as I am able to them.
So, if you read this, Thanks Doug.
