POWER CLEAN or DEADLIFT?????

Just wanted to know which exercise would be the best for the hamstrings power clean or deadlifts? BUT keep in mind iam a wide receiver in football, so iam trying to gain speed on my sprint, so in away ima sprinter too. So which exercise would be the best to help me gain more spee on my 40 yard dash time? I know deadlifts are a really good way to devlop strong hams, but i also heard that power cleans are what most sprinters do to work there hams..so i dunno.And i alreayd do SQUATS for overall leg work so its just between those to for the second part of my leg workout. Thanks for any help ahead of time. ITs been a long time since i last posted, just wanna say hi to everybody and iam glad to be back in the house!!!

    well if you are already doing a lot of sprinting, which is basically power work, then I would do SLDL for your hams. DL arent really recommended for sprinting cos they are very taxing with a limited carryover to actual running. squats and SLDL would be my idea. the 2 components are increase in max strength and increase in power output. sprinting should take care of the power output, so you should use max strength exs. If you feel you should use power cleans, then do, but I wouldnt use DL if you dont.

    I'd say go for one legged deadlifts. These are hrad for balance at first, but will train your hams and ass as well as the stabilizing muscles in your back for creating a stiffer torso when springing back you legs (as in a stride)

    Nonononononononono he doesn't - Stiff-legged deadlifts! Don't lock your legs out or you'll bugger your back.

    If you want to help your sprinting power cleans light weight high reps would help can you do them on a different day just a few sets 3x8-12 at most
