Squat Clean

In CrossFit and Olympic Weightlifting, the squat clean is a full body functional movement that builds strength and power. While CrossFit athletes refer to it as the “squat clean” (differentiating from the sister lift, the power clean), Olympic weightlifters simply refer to this movement as the ‘clean‘.

Get set with your shins as close to the bar as you can, keeping your bodyweight over your mid-foot.
