    They have helped our power cleans maxes and overall speed/power indicators. We have 2 players cleaning over 400lbs, 205lbs RB and 250lbs TE over 370 - just to name a few.

    I am with eroszag here -if what you are looking for is saving the athlete's legs, you go with the alternative that best suits him at a specific training phase (and position perhaps for football). If technique is there, I would probably prefer a hang snatch later in the season.

    Regarding late spp/ early comp season I favor hang snatch because is quite different form regular cleans...lower weight, higher speed, less low back load and so on..also less technical than power snatch from the ground.
    With 3 days devoted to OL in spp, I could also do:
    Day1) Power clean ( highest load)
    Day 2: hang snatch (highest speed)
    Day 3: clean & jerk ( slightly lighter than day 1..also used in comp cycle for the great number of MU involved)

    This is what I'm doing:

    Gpp: Power cleans - 2x weekly

    Spp - Max strength block 1 and 2 - Clean/Power snatch 1x weekly

    Spp - Maint - Clean/Split Snatch 1x weekly

    If the athlete 'needs' it, I see no reason why not. It depends on indoor racing, of course.
