Learn & Train The Bounce In The Clean For Better Recoveries

To maximize your ability to recover, learn to use and train the bounce out of the clean and front squat.

The bounce is the combination of 3 elements: the stretch-shortening reflex of the leg musculature, the elastic rebound of the bar, and to a lesser extent, the literal bounce of the upper legs off the lower legs.

This allows greater speed and less effort in the recovery, which means more energy and confidence for the jerk.
