well clean is better

Looks decent, actually. At that bar speed I want to see more weight.
Of course power clean intentionally, as part of the SS program.
My next workout(tomorrow) should be with 2 35 lbs plates, there I'll put plates under and power clean it.
You know what is funny?
Every time I tried to power clean 82.5lbs I missed it, but when I power cleaned 79.2lbs it was very very easy, easy enough to have 15-30 sec rests between sets

I didn't noticed that, I'm sure I don't deadlift this way

More than likely a form issue...and you're bending your arms too soon.

Can't handle the big plates(45's) so I'm doing hang power clean until I can.

This should read:

"Can't handle the big plates(45's) so I'm cleaning off the ground until I can."

The extra ROM will enhance your strength and flexibility (do snatch grip DLs with that same weight for more fun). If you're lucky, they'll also give you another 10 pounds of *** and legs.

Re: Hang power clean

such a small jump from a light weight resulting in failure means it is a form issue not strength. As mentioned above you are bending your arms to early, which means you are pulling with your arms from the ground, not your legs/back/hips, this is probably why you are slow at rotating your elbows around under the bar. Your arms should be relaxed while holding the weight, like chains hanging off your shoulders attached to the weight. The only time you use them is to pull yourself UNDER the bar which is what the elbows rotating under the bar means.
