im currently 6 foot and weigh about 165 and my powerclean is about 180. My vertical is 29  and my 60 is <7. Just wanted to know what you think my velocity should be at based on these numbers and if should gain weight

Since your Power Clean is not much heavier than 165 you are looking at a Power to Weight Ratio of about 1.1. It is recommended that you have a Power Clean that is 1.5 times your body weight which is 247.5. Your vertical is average and you should have a 60 of about 6.7. Since Velocity does not come all from weight training but hip to shoulder separation you should focus on 3x. I would say you velocity would be around 80mph. Keep working hard to achieve your weight lifting goals and make sure you work on hip to shoulder separation in your delivery.
