    Power Cleans


    I just finished a workout of power cleans, squats, and mil press. This is the first time attempting power cleans since high school, so I took it real easy on the weight.

    Power Cleans
    95 x 10 x 5
    115 x 10 x 5
    135 x 5 x 5

    I have a couple issues. First, sometimes the bar hits my stomach on the way up. I'm not a fatty (size 34 waist), so I know it's probably a form issue. Also, I lack the wrist flexibilty to catch the bar on my shoulders and end up catching it in my hands.

    Any thoughts on how to correct these issues and/or pointers in general?

    Wow. I don't think my traps have been this sore in a couple of years. When I deadlift, it's usually the lower portion of the traps that are sore. Today, the upper portion (by the neck/shoulders) are sore. Mild DOMS in the rear/side delts, also.

    Nice.
