How to do Log and Clean Press:
The log clean and press actually requires three separate movements: lapping, cleaning, and pressing. All of them depend on a strong upper body.
- Lap: Start with a deadlift, then with your chest high, sit the log into your hips. Keep your core tight and elbows high.
- Clean: From the lap position, thrust your hips up and forward. Keep the log high on your chest, and rotate your arms underneath it. Have your elbows high to create a front shelf for the log. Keep your core and back tight to prepare for the press.
- Press: From a nice, high position of the log on your chest, initiate the press overhead. The high elbows allow for a smooth press backwards. Use your legs like a push press for an extra boost.
