The second pull of the clean–the part between the deadlift and the dropping under the bar–is unparalleled in developing power. The drive from the hang to full extension with weight is one on of the most powerful movements a human can do. The key words in that sentence are drive and full extension. The weight must be forcefully jumped up. The hips must be full extended and the shoulders shrugged as high as possible. The second pull is worked in any variation of both the clean and the snatch. However, repeated hang power cleans with heavy, but not overwhelming weight is possibly the most effective power building exercise a trainee can do.
A very good example is the WOD below.
