Power Clean Progression

With one large group of athletes consisting of multiple training ages it is very difficult to administer a single program.  The number of regressions that must be made to the varying levels requires several knowledgeable coaches and all coaches to be on the same page with technique, cuing, and knowledge of the athlete’s experience.
