References to the squat snatch or squat clean are synonymous with the snatch and clean (i.e., pull the weight and drop under to catch it). Power snatch and power cleans, conversely, are more explosive versions of the lifts caught much higher. The generally-accepted definition of a power snatch or power clean is a snatch or clean caught with the thighs at or above parallel. However, most people doing power snatches or power cleans use a weight such that they catch the bar several inches higher than that.
