    Block cleans vs hang cleans

    Anyone use block cleans with there sprinters?

    I've used in the past with bobsledders, and currently with a female hurdler..I like they go "0 to 60 " , so useful for RFD , and also for teaching positions.
    Although I usually employ the full lifts, and hang snatch later in one of the lifting days, I feel they can have a place, mostly for teaching purposes and for those individuals lacking rfd.

    What if you only had two lifting days and wanted to power clean on one day, would you snatch or block clean on day 2?

    wouldnt block clean be less stressfull on the cns. if so, I would do the block on the second day and the reg pclean on the first day when fresh

    I suppose since you are using less weight etc but the same could be said for the snatch.

    Depends on the phase of the year...I could clean form the ground on both days early on...later I prefer 1 clean day and 1 snatch day..possibly from hang for the snatch with just 2 days...cleans could remain fairly heavy throughout the season.

    Why hang snatch over power snatch in spp1?

    what would be the purpose of block cleans? In essence, its basically just the catch right? Wouldn't the lower half of the clean... ie clean pull... be more beneficial?

    We have had good success with the block cleans while using the tendo and keeping track of watts etc. esp with our football players
