"The clean is my favorite exercise. While it is mainly used by athletes, I believe it is one of the best overall exercises for people of any age. The clean is an Olympic lift that is a total-body exercise with a focus on the posterior chain, the muscles in the back, glutes, and hamstrings. These are the muscles that will make any pair of jeans look amazing. This exercise can be performed with dumbbells, kettlebells or a barbell. The clean focuses on explosive power first and foremost, while also building strength and speed. Olympic lifting, such as the clean, helps build bone density, and will improve performance in almost any sport."
