I do power cleans for my legs and love it. However I haven't moved to the un-asist free weights. I was going to try it with a spotter. Is there any advice about Leg exercises like this ?

Please post video of what it is you are exactly doing. Power cleans are done with a barbell and no spotter.

You might want to read Starting Strength for a how-to on the power clean itself.

Ummm yeah. Not sure how anybody'd spot somebody doing a power clean, since the movement pretty much goes for a second, maybe 1.5 seconds!

I am lost in the original post trying to figure this out... Was this translated from some foreign language using Babelfish?

No spotters, as that makes it dangerous for both you and whoever is spotting you.

Find a local weightlifting or strength & conditioning coach for some one-on-one, if you can.
