    Power Clean: Muscles Worked

    I have been incorporating Power Cleans in my workout routine once a week. I separate the workout days by body parts.

    I would like to know what specific body parts the Power Clean targets. Preferably, I'd like to know what the main muscle worked is (ex. lats, middle back, lower back) and what any other muscles are worked in this exercise.

    "225, 315, 405 whatever. Yeah these benchmark digits come to mean a lot to us, the few warriors in this arena. They are, however, just numbers. I’m guilty of that sh*t too, waiting for somebody to powder my nuts cuz I did 20 reps of whatever the **** on the bench. Big f*king deal. It is all relative." G Diesel

    Main muscles used (which constitutes probably well over half the muscles in your body)
    Quads
    Hams
    Glutes
    Lower back
    Middle back (i.e. traps)

    The movement is essentially a pulling movement done in an explosive manner. It is not a shoulder/upper body movement. If it feels like one you are probably doing them wrong.
