Exercise Comments

One thing not addressed in this video that newcomers to this exercise will want to keep in mind: At the top of the clean, as you swing your elbows around, drop into a squat or semi-squat. This will ease the strain on your shoulders and make it easier to get underneath the weight for the press.
