Power clean with dumbbells

Start: Assume the bottom position f a squat, thighs parallel to the floor. Grip a pair of dumbbells with an overhand grip as they rest on the floor in front of your feet. Keep your torso erect and a slight arch in your lower back.

Finish: Driving with your leg, straighten yourself in an explosive movement as you drag the weights up along the front of your body to chest height. As you go up on the balls of your feet, quickly drop underneath the weights and " catch" them on your shoulders with your elbows high. Immediately lower them in front of you and descend to the starting position.
