well as an OLer I have a slight aversion to the jump shrug stuff that gets toted when power cleans are discussed. also because imo pcs are for an OLer an advanced lift to sub for the classical lifts on lighter days. IIRC there wasn't a lot of emphasis on hip action which is really the heart of the 2nd pull. Basically to learn the clean, the emphasis should be on the 3rd pull which is really what makes a decent clean, thus learning the pc first is an ass-backwards way to go about things... but I digress.
I do see why it's in the book, and not all ppl are going to be full on OLers anyways, so fuck it.
goddamn I'm good at thread derailment
