How To Perform the Clean and Press

  1. Stand with feet hip-width apart, barbell on the floor in front of you.
  2. Bend at the hips and knees to grip the barbell with an overhand grip, hands shoulder-width apart.
  3. Engage your core and lift the bar by extending your hips and knees, pulling the bar close to your body.
  4. As the bar reaches your thighs, explosively extend your hips and pull the barbell up to your shoulders, catching it in a front rack position.
  5. Slightly dip your knees and drive the bar overhead by extending your arms and legs simultaneously.
  6. Lower the bar back to your shoulders, then to the floor, maintaining control throughout.
  7. Repeat for the desired number of repetitions.
  8. Breathing: Inhale before lifting, exhale during the press, and inhale again as you lower the bar.
