I’ve been working on my hang cleans 3 times a week. My technique in the lift is okay,I’m not doing the retarded novice thing of upright row combined with reverse curl!!! I’m progressing ok on it and main focus is to get my speed right for now. I’ve noticed however that after the cleans I get serious tightness in my posterior traps and this in return restricts movement in my neck and it feels absolutely shity!
It’s a real pain in the assignment because when the neck tightens up I feel uncomfortable even turning my head when driving! It resolves as soon as I do an all round back hip quad stretch and of course a bit of foam rolling and trigger points with the baseball. Has anyone else experienced the same? My impression is that these elite weightlifters would need soft tissue work with focus on upperback posterior traps at least every day!!or else they’d be moving like tin man!thanks in advance for your comments
