    Feet approximately shoulder width apart
    Feet flat on the floor
    Bar touching shins
    Arms locked, regular grip, thumbs around bar
    Back straight
    Head facing forward
    Thighs parallel to floor
    Shoulders over bar
    Athlete inhales and holds breath
    Easy pull off floor
    Bar comes up straight (not around knees)
    Knees move back
    Bar stays close to body
    Bar passes knees
    Knees move back under bar
    Bar touching top of thighs
    Back tight, arms straight
    Body extends fully, athlete up on toes
    Traps are shrugged to elevate bar
    Continued upward pull by pulling with arms
    Weight racked across top of shoulders
    Elbows point out and high
    Feet spread slightly to side
    Athlete stands up, under control

    Umm I believe that is a normal clean. A powerclean is done in a rack from the low position safety bars.

    The difference between a power clean and a full clean is where you end up.

    In the full clean, that is the bottom of a front squat position.

    In the power clean, its standing up.
