Can somebody explain what these are? Thanks.
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.
Milk.... it does the body good.
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
