The barbell exercise called power clean is similar to a regular clean (umsetzen), but caught higher. What is it called in German?

According to this body-building forum it is called

Kraftumsetzen

According to another forum it is:

Standumsetzen

But probably you do nothing wrong when using the English term. It looks like it is a technical expression which does not need to be translated. It should be well understood (by body-builders) and avoid misunderstandings because of the ambiguity in the German translations.
