Coaching Tips: Make sure you stand all the way up to full extension before your start any Hang Power Clean (HPC) so be strategic on when you break up your sets. Each time you drop the bar you are going to have to deadlift it back up before starting your next HPC. Step down on the box jumps then jump right back on up, try to avoid the box jump shuffle.
