The road to championships is paved with power cleans

Couldnt agree more with the terminology, definitely not POWER cleans. Overall though the athletes seem strong and the spotting technique, although sketchy as hell, seems to work.
Funny how our governing body (NSCA) has put out three editions of its text and the terminology is wrong in all of them as well as the technique manual. It just makes the WL community laugh.
This video is a re-post. See the initial one for the discussion on the spotting technique!
Can fellow strength coaches do me a favor? Stop calling Cleans; "Power Cleans". These are not Power Cleans on this video. They are just Cleans. The term "power" in this instance refers to a high catch with an above parallel squat receiving position. Thus you can do a "Hang Power Clean", and most Hang Cleans you see are, in fact, Power Cleans.
I know I have a stick up my @$$ about this, but when I try to get some level of consistency with my athletes, it bothers me when others use the wrong terminology.
Good work in the video. It is good to see athletes working from the floor. I don't agree with the spotting, but it seems to be working for you.
