Default Power cleans

I am all for the Olympic lifts after doing some serious review to their benefits. I can see that power cleans are not only responsible for enhanced production of speed and speed-strength, but also responsible for some serious mass and hypertrophy development in athletes.

I think speed-strength is one of my main goals for this cut. I don't just want to be strong; I want to be strong, fast, and have a lot of endurance. I am going to try to increase flexibility through tons of stretches as well. My head is just below the 5'9" line and I'm thinking maybe I can reach it with enough stretching.

Back to the point of this topic: I am very interested in doing power cleans during this cycle. I don't have access to bumper plates and if I'm not mistaken your power clean is supposed to be used strictly with bumper plates. Is this true or am I over-exaggerating?
