Weight Training: Hang Clean Pull
This movement is the hang clean pull with an eccentric emphasis. When done properly this will train all the muscles of the posterior chain to perform hip extension rapidly. It is different than a regular hang clean pull in that rather than letting go of the bar at the top of the movement the athlete must maintain control by absorbing the way as it falls down by bending their knees and maintaining an engaged core.
