Kettlebell power clean

The kettlebell power clean is an explosive kettlebell exercise where the lifter pulls the weight to shoulder level with a slight swing between the legs. It is often used as a drill to teach kettlebell clean technique, but is also a valuable power exercise in its own right. It can be performed in low rep ranges for strength or higher rep ranges for technique practice or muscle growth.


  1. By taking most of the momentum out of the clean, it drills crisp technique
  2. Strengthens the hips and glutes, upper back, shoulders, and biceps
  3. Can be used on its own or to transition into a front squat or clean and press
  4. Effective for strength training or as part of a kettlebell circuit or flow
