I've been using cleans for one of my compound exercises while on CW's TBT program (on my 3X8 day so far on my second week).
First question: Am I supposed to squat down to catch the weight, or is it fine to go from the floor to the catch possition without squatting down much at all?
Second: If I'm starting from the floor, in a deadlift possition, would the exercise be power cleans?
Third: I know what hang cleans are, and if the way I'm doing them is called power cleans, how are 'normal' cleans done? With the squat, from a hang, from the floor???
Fourth: Depending on the answer to question #1, if I'm able to get from the floor to the catch without dropping under the weight, does that mean I'm using too light of a load?
Thanks in advance for anyone who can answer any of the questions. I'm starting to realy like cleans, and I want to add in more Olympic movements as I go, but they're a little difficult to get the hang of.
