Default Clean vs. the Jerk

So I engaged in a friendly argument today with a friend of mine, and it centered on the power output generated during the Clean vs. the Jerk. I contended that the Jerk produces more power than the Clean, no contest, and then pondered the reasons why it is not incorporated into more sport specific strength and conditioning programs (i.e. high school football, wrestling, etc…) He went as far as to say that not only is the Clean more powerful, but that the “Power Clean” generated the most power of all three lifts under discussion, and that’s why it was more commonly found in your more run of the mill strength and conditioning programs. Thoughts…
