Single-arm kettlebell clean

The single-arm kettlebell clean is an explosive kettlebell exercise where the lifter pulls the weight to shoulder level in a single movement. While the kettlebell clean is often used as a transitional movement into the press or front squat, it is also a valuable strength and 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. Strengthens the hips and glutes, upper back, shoulders, and biceps
  2. Can be used on its own or to transition into a front squat or clean and press
  3. Effective for strength training or as part of a kettlebell circuit or flow
