Clean 135 pounds
Ring dips

Post time to comments.

From Brand X:

Before everyone gets their collective panties in knot, if you cannot do a proper deadlift, your Elizabeth should be hang cleans. No reason to do a ballistic deadlift if you cannot deadlift correctly. If your front squat sucks, then you should do a power clean. Again if you cannot front squat the weight you have chosen well for reps it will not get better under a ballistic load. Finally if your deadlift stinks and your front squats sucks you should do hang power cleans. Don’t be stupid.

And for everyone who thinks this has to be done with cleans pulled from the ground and received in a squat I have a video of Greg A. from 2004 doing “Elizabeth” with hang power cleans. Just pick the kind of clean and note it. Don’t get all uppity because you think you are doing it “RIGHT”.

“nuff said?

Big Dawgs:
As Rx’d
Women 95#

scale the weight to 95-115# for men/55-75 for women
If you can’t do ring dips do 2X the bar dips

Dumbbell cleans
Bar Dips
If you can’t do do bar dips do 1.5X the number bench dips.

Dumbbell cleans
Bench Dips
