An exercise used to promote strength and power to the upper body while increasing coordination between the upper and lower body. Speed is very important which allows the individual performing the exercise to get under the bar. Muscles worked are the Shoulders, Triceps and Upper Back.

  1. I disagree on this being an upper body power exercise. You'll definitely promote strength due to the isometric hold at the top, but the power required to get the bar into the overhead position is almost exclusively from the triple extension of ankles, knees and hips.
