What is normally done (according to the book by Rippetoe), is to replace powercleans with bent over row (strength style) for a month or two. Then under instruction, begin learning the powerclean when the trainee feels comfortable.
Deadlifts and rows help develop the skills for a powerclean.
Okay thanks alot bro, i was just makin sure
badass[bad-ass] adj. - the epitome of the American male. He radiates confidence in everything he does, whether itís lifting weights, ordering a drink, playing a sport, buying a car, or dealing with women. Heís slow to anger, yet brutally efficient when fighting back.
The badass carves his own path. He wears, drives, drinks, watches, and listens to what he chooses, when he chooses, where he chooses. Badass style is understated but instantly recognizable.
