Trainer Aaron demonstrates how you can power through this strength move with safe, correct form.
It’s easy to pop a disc or injure you knees when doing a Clean and Press. Trainer Aaron has three safety tips:
- To protect your back, keep the bar close to your body, both when pulling it up and dragging it down.
- To protect your shoulders, lift up from your heels and through your legs. Lifting the barbell above your head is the last, and lightest, part of this move.
- The speed of your Clean & Press is relative to the amount of weight you lift. Remember, the bar alone adds weight, so start small and add weight as you’re able,
