No I didn't say that. But hoisting a concrete bag to your shoulder isn't that close to a power clean either. If you want to improve hip/glute power and triple extension power a kettlebell clean or snatch will do the job as well as a barbell power clean. That way you get a good moderate repeated power production improvement without degrading your power clean technique and hampering peak power production.
