Hi Coach, i would like to try the 12 week program but i'm not sure what is exactly a 5*clean/snatch shrug. is it one deadlift then 5 shrug or 5*(deadlift+shrug)? could you describe it please? thanks

yeah....it should read a clean pull or sn pull with a shrug at top.

ok then is it the same as a clean pull (deadlift+triple extension+pulling with arms) and than an extra shrug?

or maybe the difference between a 'clean pull' and a 'clean shrug' (which according to the program is always done with a much bigger weight) is that at a pull you are really pulling with your arms while in a shrug you only do a shrug and not really pulling?

remember: when the arms bend---the power ends....the arms go along with for the ride....triple extend then as you get speed thru the middle shrug at the top.
