I have to agree here. As I see it, the clean is already a explosive lift compared to the powerlifts because you have to give it height. Its more like a jump squat or almost a bench throw in this sense. What I'm saying is, if you've got back muscles to deadlift 500, and your cleaning 250 x 3, is only really 50% of the load you can move-although the form should be slightly different.
If you use LOTS of bands on the bench and squat they turn into the same thing-you can do a triple, and then all of the sudden, you can't get it because it just doesn't have enough speed.
