There is more than one way to skin a cat. If the coach is finding success with this method -- great.

That video is only an intro. Mostly he's working on accentuating the extension of the hips and knees. He's not even attempting to teach the squat versions at this point, or lifting from the floor, or the rack position for the clean/front squat. The form on the overhead work is a long, long way from where it needs to be -- a couple of the guys are having significant problems putting the bar directly overhead. The weight ends up way out in front. This problem is not addressed in the vid.

Like I said, there's more than one method. What works for one coach or one lifter might not work for another. Use what works, discard the rest.

Cool thanks. I was wondering if this might be a good way for a person w/ no coach in their area to learn how to clean.

It would be a good start on learning/reinforcing the triple extension, but it is incomplete IMHO for learning the clean.

I'm with Lincoln. Lincoln you should post your warm up vid again - going through all the partial movements into the full clean. That would be a better way to teach the clean. But, partials do have a place for the complete novice.

WarmupForTheClean.mov
10 muscle cleans (receive bar on straight legs, focus on getting quick rack position)
5 front squats, pause at bottom
5 squat cleans (i.e. drop right into bottom of front squat)
