    And or snatch?

    I'm thinking of adding these, but they look dangerous and I need someone to teach me them properly (in person)

    I've been working on the motion with the dingle 80lb bars, but haven't got the balls to use the oly bar :noes:

    Power cleans are fucking awesome. Weightlifting for football in HS , we had to do these once a week and they built me my favorite bodypart:my traps. It takes a few work-outs to get the hang of them but once I did, they became one of my favorite lifts. Works multiple body parts and works them well.

    i just dropped the power cleans from my workout.. but they are awesome.

    they build explosive power and wail on the traps... but other than that they dont hit anything special. they're mainly used for sports training.

    and snatches look kinda dangerous, i have yet to try them out.

    I've just started doing cleans. Fun as hell!

    Start with hanging cleans, which are basically an explosive upright row that turns into a front squat. At one point, you won't be able to lift the bar any higher, so you have to snap under it by bending your knees. Try to keep the bar as close to your body as possible. (And you don't need to bend as much as the model is.)

    Bend knees slightly and lower barbell to mid-thigh position. Slowly lower bar with taut lower back and trunk close to vertical. The advanced athlete may unload (drop) the bar from the completed position. This technique may be practiced to reduce the stress or fatigue involved in lowering the bar as prescribed. Use rubber weightlifting plates on a weightlifting platform if this unloading method is used (unless floor demolition is desired).

    unless you are doing sports, or actually enjoy them. I dont see a reason for doing them.

    I love those. We called them Clean & Jerk. I was doing 285lbs when I was at 160lbs.

    I'm talking about hanging cleans, not regular cleans.

    "
    Jump upward extending the body. Shrug the shoulders and pull the barbell upward with the arms allowing the elbows to flex out to the sides, keeping the bar close to the body. Aggressively pull the body under the bar, rotating the elbows around the bar. Catch the bar on the shoulders while moving into a squat position. Hitting the bottom of the squat, stand up immediately."

    Momentum from the hip and leg should pull the bar from your belly button to where ever you catch it. If you are using your arms to pull the bar, you are doing something wrong.
    Think of jumping, the power in your legs and momentum in your arms create the force.

    I love power cleans. I got in trouble in HS football for doing nothing but cleans.
