The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    power clean:
    1. start as if u where doing a deadlifts.
    2.speed is am must in this move so do like a speed deadlifts when u get good momentimum(Sp) , upright the weight.
    3. when speeding the bar high over say your trap area(very high upright row, tuck your elbows in as fast as u can so u "catch" the weight at shoulder level.
    4. right now u should look like your about to do a push press.
    and then back down.

    hang and clean:
    same as above but start with the weight hanging likeat a top of a deadlift and do the same movement as clean from there.

    power clean and press:
    same as power clean but at step 4 u do the push press in a quick fashion

    these are olympic lifts.

    Clean and press is an olympic lift. The bar is lifted deadlift style explosively to a press position, then pressed overhead. Its hard to explain.

    A powerclean is just the first part of the movement done with the bar resting on safety bars in a power rack.

    A hang clean is a clean done from the bar hanging from your arms.

    Check out this site:

    Make sure you check out his other pages as well, there is plenty of info on OL (Olympic Lifting) and PL (Power Lifting). Its a great site that places LOTS of concentration of FORM. PL & OL can be VERY dangerous if done incorrectly.

    If you are really into PL & OL (has some other usefull articles as well) give this site a look see:

    Hope this helps
