    I have had multiple back injuries and i dont want to use the power clean anymore, any suggestions on a exercise that will work the same muscles with less back?

    Keg toss with heavy med balls is your best bet.

    Is that like the strongman contest event.. Tossing the kegs over a hig bar?

  4. you could try kettlebell snatches. Less weight and less jerking of the back but gets the explosion aspect with a good workout for legs, back, and shoulders.

  5. I'm curious as to how you keep hurting your back on a power clean. What do you do specifically to strengthen the area?

    ^ This was my thought as well.

    If power cleans bother your back try hang cleans.
