Nice stuff. Definitely bookmarking that.

Looks like clean and snatch are very similar from the analysis in this paper:
http://www.csulb.edu/~atlastwl/PowPr...L_MSSE1980.pdf

Clean a bit ahead of snatch at lower weight class, snatch higher than clean at heavier weight classes. For all intents and purposes fairly equivalent though as the same muscles are used to get the weight up in both.
