    How old are you, and are you injured in some significant way?

    I'm not here to help you figure out a way to not do your cleans.

    Sweet Jesus.

    Power cleans are fun. Oly lifts are the most interesting thing I do as part of my training. That, and muscleups.

    I'm self taught. You can do it too. It just takes longer without a coach to cue you constantly.

    Yeah as a novice too I've found them easier to learn than squats, just using the book. To avoid over-complicating things, I just read the first bit of the power cleans chapter and learned the hang cleans first, then took it from there.

    They're the most enjoyable part of the program and will help you apply the strength you gain to whatever sports you do.
