       Hints on the Clean

    Safety: Insist that a big area, at least 48 square
feet. be cleared completely for the clean. Because of
the nature of the clean, a lifter needs plenty of
uncluttered area for safety.
     Back Strain: I've heard a number of coaches
complain about the clean because their athletes
bend way back on a maximum attempt and strain
their back. Sometimes the bend of the back is nearly
parallel to the floor. A simple solution is just don't
count any cleans with more than a little back bend.                Carl Nicks of the Utah Jazz executing a clean with his
