By this stage you may be getting a little confused with all the different names and variations on the clean! But don’t panic just yet – it’s fairly straightforward when you break it down using the ideas of Hang and Power that we learnt in the previous weeks i.e.: 1. Hang – starting from above the ground (usually just above the knee) 2. Power – don’t have to drop into a full squat position 3. Clean (differentiates it from the Snatch, the other Olympic Weightlifting movement)[/vc_column_text][us_separator type=”invisible”][vc_column_text]
