    You shouldn't think of power cleans as an exercise that works muscles, but rather a movement that develops all around explosive power.
    The more that you read, the more things you'll know.
    The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.

    The first pull is going to work the same muscles as a deadlift. I shouldn't need to explain these to you.

    The second pull is an extension of the legs, hips, and upper back. So basically you use an extension of your entire body to transfer power to the bar to drive it upward.

    The catch will isometrically work your upper back and is basically a quarter front squat.

    Probably easier to list the muscles they don't work. Herp derp.

    I feel em mostly in my traps, but thats just me. Your experiences may differ. They're fairly technical so get the form close with light weight first.
    currently cutting..... again!!
