Note: Among other things the Clean Pull will help with not bending the elbows (pulling with the arms) too soon. ¬†From Coach Mike Burgener we learned that “once the arms bend the power ends“.

The clean pull is a basic and important exercise for training the extension of the clean in terms of strength, speed, power, posture and balance. Lifters will be able to manage heavier weights than in the clean, which allows the development of strength to push weights in the clean. The clean pull can also be used as a remedial exercise to practice balance and position in the pull, or as part of a learning progression for the clean.”–Greg Everett, Catalyst Athletics
