3. Strength - The ability of a muscular unit, or combination of muscular units, to apply force.
4. Flexibility - the ability to maximize the range of motion at a given joint.
5. Power - The ability of a muscular unit, or combination of muscular units, to apply maximum force in minimum time.
6. Speed - The ability to minimize the time cycle of a repeated movement.
7. Coordination - The ability to combine several distinct movement patterns into a singular distinct movement.
8. Agility - The ability to minimize transition time from one movement pattern to another.

I have some video that I need to edit to help dissect your clean.

(2nd photo) At the height of the pull your arms should be bent by that stage - hey the bar is close to your body, you are using your hips - you hit 145 x 15! - strength, conditioning, efficiency of movement...skies the limit brother!

Great work on the clean - thx for posting your time.

Jen, as you know high-rep max effort cl&J are brutal!
