Clean & Press
The ‘Clean & Press’ is one of our most commonly used exercises on the HITMachine. It is complex and uses the full body.
Here is more information about this exercise and why we love to use it here at HITZone.
By definition the clean and press exercise is a multi-movement lift.
To ‘clean’, the arms of the HITMachine are lifted from the floor to shoulders.
To ‘press’, the arms are quickly driven from the shoulders to arm’s length over head, usually with a spring from the legs.
The clean and press teaches muscle groups in the body to move as one unit. This improves our coordination, which will in turn help with lots of other movements we use during HITZone sessions.
Here are some more benefits of using the exercise during your workout:
- Improves cardiovascular health
- Improves anaerobic endurance
- Works almost all of the muscular skeletal system
- Enhances motor skills
- Builds core strength and stability
- Improves balance
