Yep, it’s one of those threads. I’ve tried the power clean on and off several times, but I’ve never really been able to get my elbows up on the catch. After doing front squats for a few months, I figured my wrists would be plenty conditioned and flexible for the life.
Anyway, I’m using CT’s Mutation Series and am currently on my final period, which incorporates a lot of explosive lifting, including power cleans.
I tried them today - the form was no better.
If I had to try and describe my lift, I can get the bar up pretty easily without thrusting too hard or having to dip low (I’m more concerned with form than heavy weights at this point,) but again, I just can’t get my elbows up.
On a side note, it doesn’t bother my wrists at all to do front squats with a clean grip.
So, does anyone have any tips?
