SUMMARY: THE CLEAN PULL AND SNATCH PULL ARE EXERCISES THAT USE THE DOUBLE KNEE BEND AND TRIPLE EXTENSION INVOLVED IN WEIGHTLIFTING MOVEMENTS. AS A RESULT, THESE PULLING MOVEMENTS ARE USED WITH THE PURPOSE OF MAKING AN ATHLETE MORE EFFICIENT AT PRODUCING FORCE WITH AN OVERLOAD STIMULUS. IN ADDITION, THESE EXERCISES CAN BE USED AS A TEACHING MODALITY FOR THE PROGRESSIVE DEVELOPMENT OF THE FULL CLEAN OR SNATCH.
