Standing the bar up from a clean, which is effectively a front squat.Â Look around the room, what looks right or wrong?Â Pay attention to width of stance as well as position of hands and elbow position (elbows high with a strong rack).
These are the fundamentals to work on with the front squat:Â depth (the lower you catch the weight in a clean, the heavier the weight that you will be able to catch), forcing the elbows up (forces the weight into a stable rack position), foot position, width of grip, back straight.
These fundamentals will help you to become stronger in the clean.
note from Andy about cleans –
there is confusion about the terms surounding the clean
clean means squat clean
squat clean is an incorrect word since the term clean means do this function
power clean – dont bend you knees much or at all
Clean means from the floor to your shoulders
Hang Clean – DL the bar then start from your hips thus the bar is “hanging”
So you can say –
clean, power clean, hang clean, hang power clean
