Technique Tuesday: Power Clean and Squat Jerk
Here 2014 Youth National Silver Medalist Kylie Price showing how to properly perform the Power Clean and Squat Jerk Exercise. At Performance One Advanced Sports Training we use this exercise to work on several different athletic concepts. The Power Clean is used to work on an aggressive extension of the body and quick turnover of the elbows. The Squat Jerk is used to work on vertical position, strengthening the upper back, and shoulder and hip flexibility. Kylie does a great job demonstrating all of these attributes that Coach Micela wants to see out of all his athletes. She is using 55 kilos at the time of this video Kylie’s best Clean and Jerk was 65 kilos.
