I’ve been doing Westcoast for Skinny Buggers, and was wondering how you go about doing a ‘seated dumbbell power clean’. My gym’s set up at home, and none of my mates train, so I have no one to ask. I’ve done a Google, but can’t find shit, so I apologise if this is a dumb question.
I’m assuming you just sit yourself on the bench, arms by your side, bring the dumbs up to your shoulders, and repeat. That wrong?
What’s wrong is doing an Olypic lift variation seated! It’s not your fault for trying to fing something new, but some variations just don’t make sense. Power cleans are used to develope explosive strength through integration of the ankles, knees, hips, core, spine, shoulders, and a small contribution from the biceps. the key word being “explosive”. Unless you are a wheel chair athlete and your coach insists and has demonstrated this to you,take my advice and do them standing, please.
