Righty-O. Here’s my question:
When performing cleans, what is the safest way to get the weight back down from my shoulders? Anything over 75kg (165 lb) becomes hard on my wrists and hard to control.
At the moment I flick my elbows down and back as fast as possible and catch the weight on my upper quads, basically using them as a stopper, in conjunction with my arms which control the weight during deceleration. However, when the weights get heavy (for me anyway) this becomes rather painful.
What sort of weights are members here using, and what technique are you using for the negative?
BTW, we aren’t supposed to drop weights at our gym, so that’s not an option.
