The Power clean high-pull is an exercise for training strength, speed, power, posture and balance. The ability to move powerfully and explosively is a critical aspect in developing athletic success. I recently watched a clip of Terrance Crawford doing a similar exercise during his training for his fight with Amir Khan.
They are a good variation of the Romanian or traditional deadlifts. I am a big fan of incorporating spilt stance exercises into training. They are great for functionality and helping with athletic performance. In sport, people are often having to run, jump, move, turn, change direction. Split stance exercises can help generate power and force from one leg to another and help improve coordination, balance, mobility and performance
