Don't know if this thread passed it's sell by date or not, but let me just point out, unless you are in fact an olympic lifter, you can and should collect your lifts on your thigh before lowering them to the floor. Unless you're yanking ridiculous weight, you should expect to have to control it's drop. And controlling it's drop has strength advantages as well.

But, case in point, unless your deadlift is hideously weak, you will gain the same boost from hang cleans as full cleans. In fact, you will gain the same boost from High pulls as power cleans as long as you are working it hard enough. PC's only add a quad component lacking from the fact there's no "catch" of high pulls.

Bottom line. All power moves work and are valuable, none require dropping the weight unless you are lazy. And that's a whole 'nother conversation isn't it?
