Gents,

I have been weight training for some time and have recently been reading about power cleans. Apparently they can help one develop power and are used a lot by american football players.

Any of you do it? I have seen different tutorials but they tend to be written by guys who dont have a (olympic) weightlifting background. I have heard that the best guys to teach the power clean are weightlifters themselves so I am trying to find a nearby club in the London area, though it is going to prove difficult combining that with my local rugby team and job. Been browsing on Youtube for decent videos, all I could find is a long helpful tutorial by an olympic weightlifter and some videos (from the same tutorial)

Anyone else have used any other tutorials and videos? Preferably from guys who know their stuff as many of the videos especially on Youtube use horrible form. Also if anyone has experience or recommendations about this lift, I would appreciate it.

Thanks

Manuel

No idea think it just allows you concentrate on one bit of it.
