Barbell Cleans

The barbell clean is an extremely effective exercise to develop full-body strength and power. However, it takes some practice to develop good technique. Movement Continuum Theory can be applied to the barbell clean to enhance performance. Stephanie and Jen demonstrate pretty good technique during their training, Thursday. Technique, of course is dependent upon adequate joint mobility, stability, and muscular coordination. Once good technique is established, strength, power, and efficiency can be addressed with heavier loads.
