what muscles are effectd by the clean and jerk

7 posts in this topic

welcome to the board c-mag

C&G will hit loads of muscle groups mate to many individual muscles to list.

Clean is similar to dead so will hit all your posterior chain (hams,lower/mid/upper back etc), also the dip under the bar to get stood up again will hit similar to front squats so quads are gonna be hit very hard.

Your gonna use all the other muscle used in elbow flexion to get the bar to shoulders, so hitting forearms/biceps etc.

The the Jerk side of the matter... delts and triceps.

It really is a huge power move bud.
