Power Clean to Split Jerk

There are a fair number of traps in this exercise. Places where you could get caught and Madoff'd. Do not jerk the weight from floor; arise steadily then accelerate. The clean-and-jerk is multi-movement lift. In the clean portion of the performance, the barbell is lifted from floor to shoulders. In the jerk half, the barbell is driven from shoulders to arms length overhead. The lift is complete when feet are in line and bar is under control. Got it, as that was our Cliff Notes version.
