How to do dumbbell clean

Dumbbell cleans are more fun to do than face-pulls or rear-delt raises and allow you to work your delts using lighter weights than the traditional barbell version.

When to do dumbbell clean

Best workout for speed like Quicksilver

Perform the dumbbell clean for three to four sets of 10 to 15 reps at the end of an upperbody or benchpress workout.

HOW TO DO IT DUMBBELL CLEAN

1. Hold a light dumbbell in each hand, brace your core and bend forward at the hips a few degrees to generate momentum.

2. Explode to an upright position, shrug your shoulders and rotate your elbows forward, as if doing a power clean. “Catch” the momentum of the weights at shoulder level so it looks like the bottom position of an overhead press. Then turn your palms to face inward and lower the dumbbells as if you were doing a hammer curl.

QUICK TIP

Best exercise for hulk like strength

You can add a press at the end of the clean to make it a more complete shoulder-builder, or
focus on the clean alone to work the rear delts, upper traps and rotator cuffs in a new way.
