no, you still have good hip extension. i have a video i'll get up tomorrow. it's the same idea as a muscle snatch. essentially you're just doing a clean without ever re-bending the knees to get under the bar. so without that re-bending, with the clean, you have to move your elbows very quickly to get the bar racked.
