Workout of the Day: Wednesday, 12.11.13

Below, a 19 year old lifter (Kuo Hsing-Chun (-58kg, Chinese Taipei)) cleaning 136kg with ease at the 2013 WWC even with a noticeable jump forward (unusual at the elite level). She is 20 years old. Look at the 4th, 5th, and 6th frame and stay THAT close to your power cleans today to make them easier!
