This is a great multi muscle-multi joint lift that takes the bar from static position to a standing-overhead position in two motions.
First is taking bar from floor to shoulders (clean), then over head (press).
Great exercise to help develop strength-speed.
Total body exercise (works traps, back, triceps, glutes, quads, hamstrings, calves and core).
Requires every major muscle group to work together efficiently in order to lift the bar from floor to overhead.
An advanced movement. Must be able to perform correct technique in deadlift, squats and overhead press before progressing to this movement.
In the video below is a step by step guide on how to perform the clean and press.
