Power Clean Question

Ok… so my legs and glutes are still worn out from my last squat and lunge day… But for today’s workout, I was wanting to do some Hang Cleans… I was wondering if it is ok to not drop into a full front squat, but bend the knees just enough to be able to flip the bar up onto my shoulders? I thought I read somewhere, maybe by Alwyn Cosgrove, that most of the benefits of the lift comes from the intense pulling up part of the move anyways. Thank You for your time.

Peace

J.P.

Hang and power cleans do not involve the deep squat. The version in which you DO full squat is the Squat Clean.

Do 'em, they’re great for the post. chain.
