In this week’s Olympians’ Tips video, US-American Weightlifter CJ Cummings shows you how to improve your weightlifting Clean technique! The Clean is the first step in the Clean and Jerk. If you have a bad Clean, it is most likely that you will have a bad Jerk because they go hand- in hand.
Short Recap for the Clean:
1) Always make sure you have a hook grip
2) You wanna have a narrow grip
3) Back flat and chest up for starting the Clean
4) Make sure to keep the bar close and elbows up
Once you’ve done that you have a perfect Clean and you are ready for the jerk!
