    I'll money-back-guarantee the Kindle version for you. If you buy it and think it sucks, I'll mail you a check for the $10.

    Something doesn't add up. The "elite" heavyweight lifter would have to lift 680ish pounds to beat the "advanced" lightweight lifter in a deadlift competition.

    And now back to your very interesting discussion about power cleans and how powerlifting coach Mark Rippetoe teaches it...

    I added another paragraph into your comment Rich but it came out shaded for some reason. It's in between the two paragraphs you wrote.

He was invited, as an Olympic weightlifting coach, to the Olympic Solidarity course at the OTC in 2000. He taught both the USAW Club Coach course and the Sports Performance Coach course with Dr. Kilgore from 1999 through 2005. Rip served as the president of the North Texas Local Weightlifting Committee of USAW from 2004-2011. He coached and participated in the coaching of James Moser, Glenn Pendlay, Dr. Kilgore, Josh Wells (Junior World Team 2004) most of the national and international-level athletes on the Wichita Falls Weightlifting team, which was hosted and coached at WFAC from 1999 through 2006, as well as the collegiate weightlifting team from Midwestern State University through 2010. Rip still actively coaches the sport on a daily basis at WFAC, and the power clean and power snatch at our seminars around the country every month.
    but you probably know better...

    Thanks for pointing that out. I was talking about explosive power for a CNS standpoint more than necessarily the hips, although a heavy power clean or snatch will definitely carry over and help the deadlift go up. Out of your list, only the kettlebell swing is really explosive, and only if you do it explosively, don't you agree?

    I thought triple extension was a really debatable technique. Some lifters may perform better executing the snatch one way, some will the other way. Body composition plays an important role ofcourse. The sport of weightlifting seems to have changed a lot the past couple decades.

    I guess that again really depends on the trainer. I practice and train my clients explosive movement in the pull through and the hip bridge as well because of the percentages of fast twitch muscle fiber in the hamstrings as well as trying to increase the amount of fast twitch activation in the glutes.

    A good example of this was another trainer was doing pull throughs with the prowler (not sure why) he had the prowler loaded up with 200 pounds or whatever it was on there and told me that I should try using it because I would be able to get better range of motion. He proceeded to tell me I was doing my pull throughs wrong and that I'd get stronger doing it his way. By the way he was having trouble with the weight because he had been training to activate slowly. I walked over and snapped the prowler forward with no problem. He didn't really have much to say after that. It was because I've been training for speed and explosive power vs well, what ever he was training for.

    Yeah, a little googling reveals that this is apparently controversial. I haven't found a biomechanical analysis arguing against it (just "it feels hard to turn around and get under the bar"), and as I said, I don't perform the full versions of either olympic lift, so I am really not entitled to an opinion. But to me, it seems like getting the bar moving upwards as fast and high as possible is the key to successfully completing the olympic lifts as well as their derivatives.

    Interesting stuff. My power cleans suck, so I have been considering incorporating some speed (dynamic) deadilfts in their place. The right solution is to get better at the power cleans, but these are another couple of interesting options.

    Yeah, we're definitely in agreement that developing power is useful to max effort strength.
