I can see the difference between a hang clean, and a power clean, but between a clean and a squat clean... arent they the same?!

Chris Jordan 02-08-2006 09:44 PM

Yeah.

From today's comment page:
The clean IS the squat clean. There is no difference.

Unless explicitly stated "power clean", then cleans = squat cleans

Unless you split clean in which case the distinction between "clean" and "squat clean" is necessary

Squat clean a/k/a Clean = start from the floor, catch in a full squat.

Hang clean = start from the hang position above or below the knees, catch in the full squat position.

Power clean = start from the floor, catch in a quarter or half squat position a/k/a the power position.

Hang power clean = start from the hang position above or below the knees, catch in the quarter or half squat.

"Hang" describes where you start.

"Power" describes where you catch.
