That's the truth. Both with the exertion and gym rat comment.
Try sets of 12-15 reps of cleans with a weight that you can just manage. It's worse than sprints just for the pure cardio.
The shitty little gym I go to has one golden thing that makes doing Oly lifts worthwile...York bumper plates. Solid rubber plates specifically for the lifts. I'm usually more of a squat/DL person, but I like to throw in power cleans/clean and push press for variety. Good ****!
I just changed gyms and am seeing this in spades at my new place. Lots of "for show vs. for go".
