Azra Denic - Hang Squat Clean

Azra Denic

I love having Azra in a class where we’re cleaning or snatching weight. (Granted, I enjoy having her in all my classes, but especially those.) She reminds me of Nicole “Littlest” Lim of California Strength. Her quickness, agility, and coordination allow her to tuck her tiny self under the barbell in the blink of an eye, making her well suited to the Olympic Lifts.

Today’s Hang Squat Cleans are light. Everyone could easily pull the bar to their shoulders for a Power Clean followed by a Front Squat. But try not to bring the bar above your waist. Once you generate a little jump on the bar, immediately tuck yourself into the bottom position of a Front Squat for the catch.

Keep up the Strong Work, Azra.

N.B. – Azra is also a baked goods ninja. You can check out a video of her whipping up some fondant roses here.
