SB, go here ---> Hang Power Cleans and here ---> Cleans and look at the videos about cleans. Coach Burgener has coached Olympic weightlifters, so any of his instruction is top-notch. Power cleans do not include the full squat, and you can do them from the ground, or do hang power cleans (starting with the bar just above your knees). Your best bet is to start with hang power cleans.
Be sure to start with light weight--just a lightweight bar until you have the technique. I learned them starting with a length of PVC pipe, no weight at all! Also keep in mind that the Olympic lifts should be done with Olympic bars. Olympic bars have the rotating sleeve on each end that the plates go on, so as you rotate the bar when you lift, the plates don't rotate. If you try an Olympic lift with a regular barbell with plates on, your momentum will be disrupted because you'll have to make the plates rotate as well as the bar. (I hope my explanation made sense!) And NEVER drop an empty Olympic bar, you'll screw up the balance! Most regular gyms don't have Olympic bars because they're a lot more expensive than regular ones, and because they can be easily damaged.
You make your choices, and you live with them. In the end, you are those choices.
