After dabbling with a bit of log pressing, i've realised that my clean needs a lot of work. What are the best methods in cleaning the log to shoulder height?

I did some kind of power curl for the first few i did up to a couple of cleans at 80kg, but once i get to a decent enough weight that i am just able to press i don't think a power curl will happen.

Continental/belt clean- i think the log would be a bit too thick to balance on the belt.

Squat Clean- In one succinct motion the athlete explodes upright in triple extension, simultaneously rolling the log up the chest to the shoulders, arriving in an upright position, ready to press. The log stays in contact with the torso throughout this movement. -not sure how id go about this one??

They are pretty easy (Generally) once you get the hang of them.

I find its similiar to stone lifting technique if you are familiar with that.

I start by lapping the log, make sure the log is sitting on your lap as if it was on the ground, ie with the handles parallel to the ground, that way when it rolls round your body it will be higher.

From the lap position you just throw your hips through will pulling the log into your body and let it roll up onto your shoulders.

Most people clean this way.

Pick it off the floor,sit completely in the hole with the handles facing almost away from you,(make sure you chalk your gut)as you come up keep your shoulders and elbows as far back as possible and the log in tight on the TOP of your belly. Power out the hole and drive hips thru fast whilst leaning back and flicking your wrists back to allow the bar to roll from your staernum onto your collar bone.

if youve got a power gut then its pretty easy, just put the log ontop of the gut and stand up while rolling the log back.

might not be the best as the speed was slow as its the heaviest log ive cleaned, but I opt for this technique, hope it helps

position the log so that the handles are facing a bit away from you. Lift the log on to your legs in the crook of your hips. Pull the elbows back, Hard thrust with hips and make sure the elbows come out in front. May sometimes be necessary to give it a second hop to get it al the way up on to your chest. If it has not completely rolled on to the chest before you try to press you will lose it in front.

Good explanation, just to add. Make sure your wrists are touching the cut outs by the handle. that way you will prevent any slip from the log as you power out of the hole. And at the top push your elbows forward to stop the log falling forward off you chest.
