In fact if you really wanna get fancy, do clean and jerks. Basically a power clean but extend over your head at the end.

I'm pretty sure he knows what a clean and jerk is, man. I also would say a snatch is a more explosive lift than a clean. It's definitely more technique important and challenging, but I'd say a proper snatch > a proper clean as far as explosiveness.




What a stud

QFT. The snatch is non stop, not like a C&J, but with snatches I get tired very quick, and I think I have real solid conditioning. I can do C&Js all day long. I agree too that it is harder, but, to me, thats what makes it even more fun.

I heartily accept the motto, "That government is best which governs least"; and I should like to see it acted up to more rapidly and systematically.

Well, I have to say I totally disagree with this.

I think it's much more important to maintain good form on Deads than powerclean as the chance of injury is a lot higher. I also think Deadlifts are harder and more complex in maintaining correct form throughout the lift.

Not trying to call you out ThePatriot, I agree with everyhting else you said.

It's cool man. In all honesty we shouldn't really try to compare them against each other because they are both good, at achieving different goals. Technique is definitely just as important in deadlifts as in Power Clean or any other complex lift. Although, I personally feel PC's are a bit more complex and more technical but this may be different from person to person.
