  • Power clean

    What is your view on the power clean in the novice program? SS LP has it as an alternator with the Deadlift, but I would like to know your thoughts on this.

    Are other movements like barbell/pendlay row, rack pulls or just deadlifts better for your pull in a novice program?

    The reason for asking is I don’t see the power clean in the bridge and a number of other programs. I’m sure I’m missing something.

    We don't find it to be especially useful for most trainees as a primary lift, though some folks simply enjoy doing them. They do a relatively poor job of helping drive the deadlift up, so if that is a primary goal we prefer to use other pulling movements, as you describe.

      Could they potentially be valuable in terms of practicing displaying power for a sport?
