Dumbbell clean and push-press

The dumbbell clean and push-press is a full-body movement that targets both the lower and upper body. The clean utilizes the muscles of the hips, legs, glutes, back, and biceps, while the push-press utilizes the shoulders and triceps. It differs from the clean and press in that the push-press allows you to use lower-body momentum to power through the most difficult part of the press. It can be trained in low to moderate reps for strength, or for higher reps, such as 8-12 reps per set or more, for muscle building or metabolic conditioning.
