New article up on my fitness site. Avoid some of the more common errors in doing cleans and actually make progress. Just read http://perfectfitdallas.wordpress.com/2013/05/02/clean-up-cleans/
It doesn’t matter if you’re cleaning for a sport, for fun or for Crossfit. Not using the proper form will let you get by for a while, but eventually you will reach a plateau that is virtually impossible to break. That and you run a much higher risk of damaging or injuring your back, knees, elbows and arms. Be patient, be consistent and treat every lift with relentless perfectionism. You’ll get there.
