The 'hip thrust' is supposed to cause the bar to brush the thighs - at most - not bounce off of them. You should use a lot of hip extension in the clean, absolutely. But the hips should not slam into the bar. Bouncing off the thighs causes excessive bar swing, which either results in a big loop at the top of the clean or leaving the bar out in front.
