Movements Weightlifting Clean & Jerk

Overview & Demo

One of the olympic lifts. See "squat clean" and "push jerk"/"split jerk" for more detail. The clean is performed first, lifting the weight from the ground to the athlete's shoulders in one continuous movement. From the top of the clean, in the standing position, the jerk is performed second. Athletes must show control of the weight in an overhead, fully standing position before dropping the barbell. The clean & jerk allows for a tremendous amount of weight to be lifted. As a result, the squat clean and split jerk variations are most often used.

Equipment

Rogue Beater Bar
The Beater bar is a 31 MM bar with no center knurling and has Olympic knurling marks. The shaft is black zinc and the sleeves are bright zinc coated. This bar is not made for competitive olifts, it is meant to be the bar that takes a high rep beating where the diameter of the shaft is not essential. - RogueFitness.com

Rogue ES-1 Echo Squat Stand
Just the bare essentials. This stand can handle your 500LB back squat with ease. We went back to the drawing board and came up with a squat stand for those of you on a budget. Still constructed at the Rogue Factory in Columbus Ohio, this stand is everything you expect from Rogue: a heavy duty quality made piece of equipment. We didn't cut any corners on this one. Now you can get a US made squat stand for the same price others are selling flimsy imports for. - RogueFitness.com
