    question on cleans .... best way to pug weight down on the floor?


    OK so today I was doing some romanian deadlifts and figured I would like finish up with some front squats. So I cleaned(sp?) 125 from the ground and did ~10 front squat reps. When I was lowering weight I figured this can be a great way snap city.


    question whats the best way to lower bar to the ground from front squat? other then throwing it on the ground. When I lower weight should I have my back straight or should I bend forward into deadlift position..... ?

    thanks in advance

    Drop it if at all possible. If not, get in the power stance and drop it to mid thigh, then lower it to the floor with a flat back as you would during a deadlift.

    My gym has this room it is padded and sometimes people stretch there... I just don’t want to freak them out with dropping weights.

    oh well i would think if its padded for weights, then expect soemthing to slam down. id rather toss it safely than risk hurting myself bringing it down if the only drawback was scaring a few people

    Crossfitter! Does your workout make you nervous? ... It should.
    Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it.
