Power Clean Overview

The Power Clean is a dynamic, full-body exercise that explosively lifts a barbell from the floor to the shoulders, enhancing power, strength, and athletic performance.

Muscles Worked

Equipment Needed

Barbell, Weight Plates

How To Perform the Power Clean

  1. Stand with feet hip-width apart, barbell over mid-foot, and grip the bar just outside the knees.
  2. Bend at the hips and knees, keeping your chest up and back flat.
  3. Initiate the lift by driving through your heels, extending your hips and knees to pull the bar up.
  4. When the bar reaches mid-thigh, explosively shrug your shoulders and pull yourself under the bar.
  5. Catch the bar on your shoulders in a front squat position, with elbows high and core tight.
  6. Stand up fully to complete the lift.
  7. Inhale before lifting, exhale as you extend your hips and knees.

Pro Tips for Power Clean

  • Maintain a flat back and strong core throughout the lift.
  • Start with lighter weights to perfect your form before increasing load.
  • Avoid pulling with your arms early; focus on using your legs and hips to drive the movement.
  • Use lifting straps if grip strength is an issue, and consider practicing the movement with a PVC pipe or empty barbell for beginners.
