    Power Cleans or Hang Cleans for Vertical leap?

    I am starting a new routine that will include some form of cleans because I want more speed and more importantly vertical leap. Which form of cleans is best for what I am looking for?

    For me hang cleans require more explosiveness. In hs and college for football we always did hang. So my logic has always been more explosiveness more vertical height and better 40's. I'm gonna say explosiveness 1 more time.

    I would suggest full cleans, since that will require more leg and hip involvement.


    Hang cleans get bastardized by most and turned into a posterior delt and trap exercise.

    Do you mean power cleans from the floor versus power cleans from the hang?

    Or power cleans from the floor versus full cleans from the hang (as started in the OP)?

    I don't think cleans from the hang position are called power cleans.

    Clean/Full Clean/Squat Clean
    Power Clean
    Hang Clean
    Hang Power Clean

    Hang refers to where it starts. Power refers to where it is caught.

    They are if you receive the bar above parallel. Specifically a "hang power clean" or "power clean from the hang".

    To play devil's advocate here and to note do not get all butt hurt, this is not a personal stance but a topic of interest.

    Coach Joe Defranco doesn't believe cleans are needed for better vertical leap. Neither does Coach Kelly Baggett. One guy trains people for the NFL Combine and the other has a book called the Vertical Jump bible. Google both of them and do some reading about the topic, I'd post links but I'm not allowed to yet. I do cleans and power cleans personally but not for the sake of increasing my vertical leap.
