Enhance Your Power Clean by Mastering this Key Position!


The Rack Position is an important position in our Athletic Development and Strength and Conditioning Programs as it is the receiving position in both the Hang and Power Clean. It’s also a versatile position in that it allows students to either Push Press or Squat out of it.  Maintaining proper body position and alignment is essential, especially relating to the elbows and wrist.

The below movements or exercies can be used to enhance the Rack Position:

  • Press – Barbell, Single Arm or Double Kettlebell/Dumbbell Press or Push Press
  • Squat – Front Squat, Single Arm or Double Racked Kettlebell Front Squat
  • Hang /Power Clean

Thank you to Ashton, Maria, Madalyn and Alivia for assisting!
