Seated Power Cleans
I haven't seen a seated power clean done in some time. Is this how to perform the exercise properly? Lean forward to about a 45 degree trunk angle. With your back extensors (maintain neutral spinal alignment), explode the DB's up and rack them on your shoulders. I'm speaking of the concentric movement-only. Thanks for your input!

I wasn't even aware you could do a power clean seated. Doesn't that really go against the entire reason for doing a power clean?

It's an exercise recommended by strength coach Joe DeFranco. Here's a link http://www.*************/readTopic.do?id=459321
It's a modified Westside program for hardgainers.
I couldn't get the link to work for some reason, so go to www.defrancostraining.com
Go under the articles section and look for Westside for Skinny Bastards.

Papi, i do seriously recommend u stick to power cleans as they're meant to be done to get the full benefits. i really don't see the point of doing seated cleans.

I'm one of those that isn't too concerned when u fit in most lifts, as every training day for me is full body and always has been. As to where u put cleans, it doesn't matter where as long as they are before squats and the like. Given cleans are a technical lift, you don't want to be wiped out by the time u get to them.
Yeah i had a read, but i saw no detail on them. All I saw was them listed as seated dumbbell power cleans? Nevertheless, just stick to cleans as they were meant to be. No need to play with a time tested lift.

i think you will be hard pressed to find anyone. As it it, there's not even a lot of ppl that even do power cleans, too interested in curls, tricep kickbacks blah blah blah

here's all i could find:
man is this old fart a jackass. one of the least helpful responses i've yet heard. the fact that he'd advise someone one how to perform a clean by saying "clean it" just suggests to me that he has absolutely no idea wat goes into properly executing a clean.

sounds like it shares a name with power cleans more than that much in common. i think you are going to have to use your bi's when you clean it, and that this would work you rotator cuffs alot.
