seems this one move could replace squat , dead lift and military press. But doing the squat or dead or military press solo instead of a clean and jerk you could maybe do more weight?
The full clean (and jerk) is a very powerfull move involving the whole body, Oly lifter do the c&j and the snatch as their main lifts and do variations like front and back squats as assistance exercises to the power moves. The c&j has its place in a strength/muscle building workout, but its very much about mastering the technique of the lift, taking alot of time and practice.
I would do powercleans from the ground and hangcleans, and then move over to the c&j if you feel like it.
