Dumbbell Clean & Press

  • Intermediate
  • Dumbbell
  • Full Body

Setup instructions

1) Start with a wider than normal stance - chest up, back flat, head neutral and core tight.

2) Hinge forward from the hips into a squat position. Grab the dumbbells and tilt your wrists forward - so the front has contact with the floor and the back is lifted.

Perform instructions

1) Push through your heels, shrug at the shoulders and quickly pull the weights to your chest so each dumbbell is facing forward. Squat down and catch them on your shoulders. Come up to standing.

2) Once again, bend your knees, drive from the heels back to standing. Use this momentum to perform an overhead press by extending your arms upwards. This is an explosive move so be quick with the movements.

3) Complete each movement in reverse until you come to the starting position.

4) Repeat.
