among all the athletes here that power clean, i would like to know your 100m time to your power clean. Did it affect your speed significantly? I am new to power clean my best is only 125lbs, but i have not run any 100m so i dont know how much influence this will have on my speed. But for the rest of you can you share your experiences of oly lifts and its significant role it played out during your season.
All else being equal. Stronger is always better. Having said that, there’s no way to make comparisons between individuals 100m times based on their power clean max as their are so many other variables that come into play. If power clean max was the determining factor in 100m performance Olympic weightlifters would be the top sprinters in the world. I think the only safe thing to say is that if one person get stronger in the power clean and all their other physical parameters are the same (or better) then the athlete should run faster.
