Hang Squat Clean

The hang squat clean is the next advanced progression from the hang power clean. Start with the bar above your knees in either the low hang (shown below), mid hang or high hang position. I have a neutral head below, however you may choose to be looking straight ahead. Start with your feet directly underneath your hips.

We next look at the jumping phase or the triple extension point where the hips, knees and ankles are extended. This is the same as jumping.

Next, you will need to drive yourself underneath the bar into the deep squat position in the position seen below. You will need to use your hip flexors to do this. It also helps to practice by doing some fast air squats. In this catch position, you will need to bring your feet out to shoulder width distance apart.

Try to keep your upper arms parallel to the ground and your back should be parallel to your tibia (lower leg) or towards vertical.

Next stand up as in a normal front squat making sure that you have your hips and knees extended.
