    Default Are KB Cleans - Power Cleans and Pull ups effect on pressing movements!!

    I was wondering if it is wise to do KB cleans - Power Cleans and Pull ups the day before pressing movements or would it be wiser to do these movements on the same day as your presses as a combination with pressing movements or separately.I ask this question because it seems to me the exercises mentioned seem to hold back my pressing when done on the day before pressing.Pavel mentioned about pull ups to be done on the same day as presses is this the same for KB Cleans and Power Cleans?

    Do you mean supersetting? Doing one clean and press and then doing one pull up and so forth?

    What I mean is supersetting or just doing the cleans,power cleans and other related pulling exercises as a combination with the pressing exercises .Or do the pulling exercises on separate days from your pressing movements.For example Pavel mentioned do Pull ups on the same day as pressing or the day after never the day before.I was wondering if the same applies for power cleans and KB Cleans?

    If your trying to do any type of barbell cleans on ETK, just throw them into your variety day and keep it easy. Something like 2x5 @ 60-80% 1RM probably wouldn't affect you too badly, but it's your call as you are the only person who knows their own recovery rates.

    Cheers,

    Depends what your pressing movement is and what your split looks like, you didn't really give a lot of info,
    If its a full barbell military presses I would do them first, then power cleans and then pullupps.
    Every OH pressing movement is a whole body lift and is easily influenced by the lack of strength(from what ever reason, in your case I'm thinking fatigue in low back/abs) in a particular body section(be it lower back, lats, abs...).
    If it's "ligther" Kb pressing (32 down), you could do them after power cleans in a superset fashion with pullupps
    If its the bench press, the advice would still stand, but to cut it short a good rule of thumb is - for all Barbell and super heavy KB pressing movements, always press before you pull.

    You've answered your own question. It doesn't matter a damn what anyone else thinks or says if for you cleans and pullups the day before have a negative effect. Everything is a starting point and a guideline until you know what works better or worse for yourself.
