One Exercise That Works The Whole Body

The clean and press is an exercise that one seldom sees being done at any gym unless it is an Olympic weight-lifting gym. The movement is not done on a regular basis for one simple reason, it is hard work and is not for beginners as technique is vitally important when doing this movement.

But results continue to prove that this movement works well in developing useable coordinated strength. Increasing lean body mass and core strength at the same rate, sometimes faster, than squats. Clean and press will not only improve core strength but will also improve stamina and cardiovascular capacity.

Many years ago when Dr. Squat Fred Hatfield was asked what movement he would do if he could only select one movement to stay fit and healthy and grow stronger on each workout Fred answered the squat. He later corrected this by saying that the clean and press along with the squat are the most effective ways to increase core strength in your body.

When a bodybuilder does a clean and press with two dumbbells synchronized unilateral work is achieved on both sides of the body. The bodybuilder is then forced to coordinate the two dumbbells compared with doing the same movement using a barbell.

Another advantage when doing clean and press with dumbbells is an increase in ROM (range of motion) which will always means slightly better results as more muscle fibers are being used. Most bodybuilding experts agree that any beginner should learn the clean and press when starting out

Because this movement is so taxing on the body it is recommended that you only train the clean and press once a week until you have developed some resistance to this movement so that you can start to push yourself. If you do this on a regular basis you will quickly see an increase in strength as you lift a heavier weight for other compound movements like squats, bench-press and deadlifts.
