Bar work: introducing the power clean

The power clean (pulling the bar up from the floor and racking it on the front of your shoulders) is a beautifully intense exercise that puts mind and muscle to work with big rewards. Definitely one for the front-end of your workout when you’re feeling fresh and full of energy.

Sally Moss from Ultimate Performance demonstrates the move in the clip below –

If you’ve mastered the deadlift then you’re well on the way to getting to grips with the power clean. Give it a go – you’ll need some weight on the bar so that there’s enough resistance to work against, but as always start light and explore the technique before attempting to break any records.
