These reps take some time. Make sure you don't get crazy with the throw over and have to go chasing your bag all over the place!
For the lungesters you will clean the sandbag to the biceps with the elbows high. You may perform the lunges portion as reverse stepping or forward stepping. Make sure you take a long enough step that your front heel stays down when your back knee LIGHTLY touches the ground. Don't allow the forward knee to cave in. Keep the belly tight and chest up. You will perform a lunge on each side.
Put the feet at shoulder width apart. Heels down. Sandbag still on the biceps with the elbows high. Reach the butt back and down. Keep the heels down and drive the knees out. Keep the chest up and belly tight. Get the butt lower than the knees at the bottom. Drive up hard and fast out of the squat. Pop the sandbag up, move your face out of the way. Keep the belly tight and press the bag straight up to lock out - finishing with the biceps by the ears! Rib cage down and belly tight.
For power clean & throw over, the sandbag will start on the ground. Feet under the hips roughly. Knees are bent, sandbag is close to the body, chest is up, arms are straight. Stand by driving the heels down and lifting the chest. Stand up hard and fast (jump) SHRUG the shoulders. Shoot the elbows around and forward FAST to get the sandbag on the biceps with the elbows high. As you shoot the elbows around you will pull yourself under into a partial front squat. Throw the bag over a box, bench, or racked barbell to complete the rep.
