The Clean is a beautiful combination of strength, speed, and athleticism. Strength to move heavy weights. Speed to move your body around the barbell. Athleticism to put it all together. In the One Ton Challenge, if you are going to make it into the One Ton Club, you will need a big clean. In this episode of Barbell Shrugged, Anders Varner, Doug Larson, and Coach Travis Mash outline the technique, mobility, and training to increase your clean and get in to the One Ton Club.
