I have a question concerning the Hang Clean. I always used to do Cleans from the ground (And I don’t think I am gonna stop them as I love them to much), but after the “Strong Athlete, Zero Injuries”-Article, I thought I give the Hang Clean a try…
And I was surprised how much less weight I could handle. (From the ground: 220lbs x 2, From Hang: 155lbs x 3 [the higher rep is because I could feel that I shouldn’t go up in weight])
Now my question: Is the difference just related to learning the technique of the exercise (effeciency of the CNS), or is the discrepancy realated to a particular weakness that was covered up by the additional drive from the ground?
Or is that normal?
If it is a weakness, how could I address it? (Supplementary Exercises?)
Thanks for taking the time to answer this.
