crap 275. Geez when i get to 140 the weight can’t go past my chest i can’t get it fully up to my chin. I dont know what strength variables i need to complete the lift, i deadlift 275, and squat 260, but my bench however is 155. Should i focus on strength in the chest to help my clean?
The biggest key to power cleaning a lot of weight is good form. Strength in the chest shouldn’t contribute much to the power clean. I would say the biggest upper body contributing muscle group is the shoulders. However, the power clean is primarily a lower body lift. Another key is confidence. You can’t think about what’s on the ends of that bar. Just get down and rip that baby up with all you’ve got. Then the form comes in to play when you have to dip under. [/quote]
ok i undestand, i need to film myself, i want to master this lift my problem is dip to catch the lift, my arms can’t go paralell so i grab it at an unusual style, which hurts my arms sometimes. I dont know how to get better flexibility for it.
