Hey, I’d love to progress into performing proper cleans at home and I find myself debating the safety of this. The closest to them I currently do are power cleans and high pulls, so I’m most unsure about how to squat into them.
Also, I’ve got that whole wrist problem with the front squat rack position and the push press. For example, during front squats, I generally barely have a grip on the bar, other than my fingertips, and when performing push presses, I do them out of the bottom of the military press position, not the racked position.
So, when it’s a power clean weight, ending up in the military press position isn’t that big of a deal, and if I go to rack, pressing it becomes impossible. That also makes me worry about catching real weight since that position might involve tipping over, and going to the rack will involve losing grip.
Logically, I’m sure I could start low and go up in weight as I improve, but for starters, I’ve no clue as to how to get under the bar safely and properly. That would be the first thing to learn.
Advice is much appreciated.
