How much of OLing leg work is moderate-high rep?

Beginner question about the second pull?

I am new to Olympic lifting and I have been taught to basically jump as vertically as possible after the bar passes the knees for the snatch and clean and I feel like I am either misunderstanding, or this feels incorrect.
