Double Clean and Push Press
The Double Clean and Push Press is a combination of two kettlebell exercises. The Double Clean and the Double Push Press.
This is a full body exercise that teaches your body how to work as one unit. It is not as technical as the clean and jerk and is relatively easy to learn.
The Double Clean and Push Press uses the arms and shoulders in combination with the hips and thighs in an exercise that is slightly less difficult than the Double Snatch.
The Double Clean and Push Press will connect your hips to the shoulders, coordinating forceful leg drive with powerful triceps and shoulders, for explosive strikes.
The hip-thrust helps you clean the bells into the rack position and an additional leg-thrust will help you push press the bells up.
Breathe during the back-swing and again in the rack position, if needed. If you have to rest for a second or two, do it in either the rack position or fully extended position.
