Certainly not referring to Boston Stomp as High level Olympic Lifting. Here is part of a technique seminar  where high level olympic technique is discussed. My point is that optimum technique for maximizing clean poundage is not necessarily best for maximizing triple extension.

Like I said, this is a good point. Cleaning for the athlete/pitcher is better for the position if the Power Clean is used and triple extension is the focus. This is also true for most athletes outside of the sport of Olympic Lifting. This doesn’t mean this type of Olympic technique of the clean will not help the athlete/pitcher because it is improving force production which will help all athletes. It is just that focusing more on triple extending and driving the weight up as long as possible will be more effective in training force production through triple extension. This is why the Power Clean is the better lift for the speed or power athlete.

Agreed. I have been coaching track and field throwing events for 25 years and find the same principle applies. We use oly lifts as a tool but don’t necessarily concentrate on the optimum technique to pull more weight.
