No, they don't: 20% slop.
I also do a bit of weightlifting coaching myself, just to help newbies get into the sport, but half of the people I've had come to me have been CrossFitters who only want to learn the Olympic lifts to improve their cardio workout times. They never come for more than 3-4hrs of coaching, because that's about how long it takes them to realize that they aren't going to learn the lifts properly unless they actually become weightlifters.
