Thursday 25.6: Hang power cleans, Ring dips

Thursday. Hang power clean 4x5 (max 80kg). Workout, 5 rds of: 10 hang power clean (60kg), 10 ring dips.

We woke up again very early in the morning with Pauliina and went for a 30 min walk at dawn. That is a great way to start the morning. That almost turned out to be all I had time for today but late in the evening I sneaked to the gym and did some light work. My legs are still sensitive so I let them take it easier. No hard metcons this time. Couple of hang clean sets and ring dips.

Ilya Ilyin's afternoon heavy workout. I posted his same day morning light workout couple of  days ago


  • Hang power clean 5-5-5-5 (60, 70, 80, 80kg)

I prefer squat cleans because those transfer more into clean and jerks and snatches. Mobility improves every time, and it's possible to go heavier. From time to time it's beneficial to do power cleans too. Especially for pure strength purposes. Today the reason was these legs. They were not ready to squat.

Recap of the day

  • 5 rounds not for time of:
  • 10 hang power clean, 60kg
  • 10 ring dip

Easy work to the end. My training pal Jasper had left the building at this stage so we didn't hit it together against the clock but this was just simple work load completed. The purpose was to go unbroken on both elements, and that plan worked well.
