Power Cleans – Shoulder Exercise Guide with Photos


Exercise Advice*It is highly recommended that you employ the advice and supervision of a certified trainer while learning how to properly perform this exercise.This is a combination exercise that truly works your whole body. Be sure to be in an area specifically designed for Power Cleans or somewhere that has enough room to execute this exercise. Place a barbell on the floor at your feet. Keeping your back straight, squat down and grasp the barbell with both hands using an overhand grip just beyond shoulder width apart. In one motion, lift the barbell by using your legs so that you end up standing up straight. Be sure to keep your arms hanging straight down so that the barbell ends up being just about mid-thigh level. Next, in one motion, lift the barbell to your chin by raising your elbows up toward the ceiling while one of your legs drops back underneath you to give you additional support. Just as the barbell nears your chin, you will drop your elbows which will cause your wrists to tuck underneath the barbell. Finally, bring your support leg back underneath you so that you are now standing up straight with the barbell tucked under your chin. Return to the start position and repeat.
