Good work Tank. And excellent post by Spart.

Like Spart mentioned, be careful associating portions of the oly lift with deads, or rdls, etc. Similiar in basic principle, but very much different.

As for clarification to my first post. I say avoid power cleans and power snatches when learning the lifts because this will ingrain a focus on pulling the bar up. In doing so, people will often pull to quick off the floor, cut either their 1st or 2nd pull short, and overextend the hips in an effort to get the bar higher. This makes getting under the bar extremely difficult when the weight gets heavy.

Learning the full lifts BEFORE the power versions will make things a lot better in the long run. As for the variations mentioned in the Pendlay article, those were not refering to power versions, but rather portions of a full lift followed by the full lift...

... 1 "Rep" would be a clean pull from the floor, lower bar to just below the knee and than perform a hand clean from that position (high pull + hang clean from knee). Etc...
