    Well, a hang clean is an abbreviated version of a full clean. The problem with ripping the bar off the ground is that it often puts you into poor position for the explosion phase. That's not to say some very good lifters dont explode of the ground, but most pull the bar to about their knee level and then really explode, building some momentum and speed as they approach their knees.

    Vrizzle - yeah, I compete. I qualified for the American open last year, but a pulled quad kept me from actually lifting.
