    Power cleans are good for any athlete. Hard to determine exactly where to put them since they are a total body movement. This is why I don't like bodybuilding type routines for athletes (splitting body parts) unless there is a definite reason for it.

    Hey man, my workout schedule is almost identical to yours. I work Chest/Tris -Monday, Back/Bi's Tues, Legs/Wed, Arms Thurs, and Shoulders/Fri. If i dont have a game on Saturday i will do cleans and deads on that day, but if i do, i will do them on sunday instead and my body seems to have full time to recover. Sometimes i do my cleans the same day i do my shoulders. I have just recently got really into deadlifts and cleans, and i find that it is helping me a ton in hockey with my core strength. It will make you a lot more solid and hard to move around.
