    Best full body exercise I know. No idea why the primary muscles are the hamstrings, however, as the hips are where virtually all of the power for this exercise comes from, and at no point do you do any movement pulling your lower legs back toward your quads.

    Amazing how quickly these can take the wind out of you. Excellent full body exercise for sure. I would recommend them to anyone pressed for time who wants to cover most of their bases.

    These are great, but I worry about the technique shown in the training video. Elbows in line vertically with the bar? With more serious weight, I'd worry . . .

    The Clean is a Weightlifting aka Olympic Lifting exercise and requires extensive training technique. This video is not appropriate execution. The first pull from the ground is incorrect, transition from power position is incorrect. I would suggest learning from a USA Weightlifting Certified Coach.
