    Anyone have this in their current routine? I currently do a variety of squats, deadlift and seated military press but am considering switching the military press for clean and press. Any advantages to clean and press over a combination of the single movement counterparts?

    Also, I've seen the clean done more like a row versus dropping down into a front squat position. It's basically starting with the bar hanging in front of you, bend the kness slightly and then extend the legs and row the bar up as you rotate your hands under the bar. Is this an acceptable variation?

    there is a "full" clean and a "hang" clean. The "hang" variation is what your talking about.

    It's actually a power clean from the hang.
