Overall great workout. I took jude's suggestion, which will help me improve on my clean form; light weight and deload each rep so that I do the clean many times. The two sets for this and the 2 sets of DB squats add up to 4 which compliments my deadlifts. Still have a cold so I was coughing and out of breath after each set, but thats okay, it should be gone in a few days. BTW I put plates over my toes while doing the DB squats as a temporary safety precaution, jude.
