Coaching Tips: Hook grip the dumbbells if possible. You will also want to make sure you are paying attention to knee position. Do not let your knees cave in on the power cleans or the push presses (which tends to happen more often with dumbbells!) On the lunges, make sure you aren’t tipping the torso forward, and you are controlling where your front knee is tracking (with the foot).
