Healthista’s Strong Woman Series aims to educate aspiring weight trainers how to safely carry out heavy lifting workouts.  Last week Nicola Addison taught us how to properly use a bar and rack to prevent injury and this week takes you through how to do the big moves such as deadlifts, squats and bench presses. yesterday, Nicola showed us How to do a Deadlift.

Today, Nicola takes us through how to do a muscular clean, also called a power clean. This is a starting move and gets your heart rate going. It’s a big compound movement, working lots of muscles at the same time and getting the heart rate going, making it a great workout for torching calories.

Start with your feet directly under the bar, with the thumbs touching the thighs.

Do a deadlift to pick the bar up with abdominals  braced, and weight in your heels.

Stand up with the bar touching the thighs then drag the bar up your chest scooping through the body.

With elbows under, lift the bar into a high position rolling down. You can use a little bit of momentum with a little dip through the hips, then catch the bar and and roll it down the body.
