The clean and press exercise is a full-body movement that targets several major muscle groups including the legs, back, shoulders, and arms. It’s considered a compound exercise because it involves multiple joints and muscle groups working together in a coordinated effort to complete the lift. The exercise consists of two distinct movements: the clean and the press. First, the athlete lifts the barbell from the floor to the shoulders in a squat position known as the 'clean'. Then, they perform a vertical press, moving the weight overhead using the legs and upper body. The clean and press exercise is an excellent choice for athletes looking to improve their overall strength, power, and explosiveness. It also has a high metabolic demand, making it a great choice for conditioning and fat loss.
