Ruck Power Clean


1. Start in a standing position with feet hip-width apart and arms down by your side.

2. Hinge at the hips and bend the knees as you reach down to grab the ruck from the ground.

3. Grab the ruck on the outside handles, with hands slightly wider than shoulder-width apart.

4. Drive through the heels to explosively extend the hips and knees, pulling the ruck up towards the chest.

5. As the ruck reaches chest level, shrug the shoulders and pull the elbows up and forward-facing.

6. Catch the ruck in the front rack position with elbows up and hips and knees in a partial squat.

7. Stand up with the ruck, extending the hips and knees.

8. Lower the ruck back to the hips, and then to the floor, in a controlled manner.

9. Repeat.
