Although not a "power" clean, but a clean and jerk, arguably one of the best Olympic lifters of all time http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EgcsKCXnAeA

Also, I respectfully disagree with you on point number 3 under power clean. Without proper coaching and technique one may inflict serious bodily harm. Please don't discount coaching and technique.

Nick McKinless

Hi David,

There was no discounting of coaching. In fact point 3 mentions coaching.

Whilst I agree that coaching is of value, I also understand that most people just don't have that option available to them.

I taught myself the Power Clean before I gained the necessary Weight Lifting qualifications (many, many years ago now).

The Power Clean is an athletic movement though so I understand your concern but in no way was I discounting the value of coaching.

I must admit Nick i love these exercises and it's improved my over all strength no end, i intend to make these a regular movement in my training.


Nick, I stumbled on this site at the right time. Good posts. I have some questions, though.

First, I am inexperienced with the PC and the PP. PC Techinique: Do I stand with feet at shoulder width and grip the bar wider than shoulder width? Or vise-versa?

Second: What is the difference between a PP and a military press? Or is there a difference?

Third: Does the PC include the PP, which is what is demonstrated in the ESPN classic video of the 500 lb press you posted?



By the way, I tried both techniques regarding grip and stance, and I felt much stronger with feet at shoulder width and hands wider than. Today was a first try, and you're right, I'm huffin' and puffin'

Found a decent power clean and push press video for you. Nie article BTW!



I would just like to add that dumbbell snatches are an excellent addition to PC and PP for overall strength and explosiveness.


look, all i have to say is that the powerclean is the most efficient exersize.
1- increases endurence
2-muscle stamina


have a question for you which you may have already addressed elsewhere. If that’s the case, my bad.

My question: What products do you recommend as a way to clean your pc rid of all evidence you were ever there. It’s more for my work PC. I want to start cleaning it nightly so if I ever get canned, everything is already gone.


This blog was... how do you say it? Relevant!! Finally I've found something that helped me. Cheers!


There is certainly a lot to find out about this topic. I like all of the points you have made.

how to get bigger boobs

The majority of the girls and ladies want to have round firm boobs that are in proportion with the other body parts. In 2006, a woman and her family were removed from a Freedom Airlines flight, which is operated by Delta Air Lines, after a flight attendant asked the woman to cover up while she was breastfeeding her 22-month-old daughter before the flight took off. There are also a seemingly infinite number of companies and websites offering a huge array of products to increase breast size.
