My best lifts from the hang are exactly as heavy as I can lift from the floor for both the snatch and clean.

That s interesting...i would have thought that you (you in general, not just you in particular :-p) can do more from the floor than from the hang. especially if you look at bar velocity vs time graph: the bar is moving at quite some speed by the time it gets to the hang, that must make a difference?!

It's the eccentric loading portion of the hang that makes it more powerful. You don't do a full squat with a pause at the bottom when you're testing your vertical jump.

ah i can see where you are coming from, i supose it depends on how you do the exercise, i always need to pause at the hang and make sure the positioning is correct....still though, is that gonna fully compensate for having a bar that is already moving at some speed?
how do the numbers compare for elite lifters?

Mine are about 85-90% from the hang vs. from the floor. I know many people-- especially throwers and football players-- who can hang much more than they can move from the floor (not using straps from the hang). For instance, a friend of mine who used to compete in the Highland Games has snatched 140 from the hang, but only 110 ever from the floor.

I always thought that someone should be able to lift more from the ground then from the hang since u have more time to gather velocity. i am fairly new at this so i'm not that positive. it would be interesting to see how elite lifters hang and full positions compare.

A lot of lifters can do more from the hang. If you have a solid hang, then you pretty much are in the best position possible to lift and generate the most momentum on the barbell. A lot can go wrong from the floor to mid-thigh because the bar has to travel a few feet, meaning there is a lot of room for error.
