WeÕre going to focusing on what you canÕt do. What constitutes a proper clean is weÕre going to get into full extension and get the bar onto the chest in one motion. Okay? We can do it either power style like this or we can do squat style. If youÕre squatting into your clean, we cannot have the elbows touch the knees. What we donÕt want to see is at the bottom of the squat position, elbows touching the knees. That would constitute no rep. Okay? The other thing that would be faulty clean would be if we get the bar half way up our chest and fix it after we stand up. That would obviously be not a rep. Needs to be one movement all the way up to your standing position. After that, weÕre going to focus on the jerk. The jerk can be done in one of two styles. WeÕre going to be either going for the Push Jerk which is feet staying even. What weÕre looking for here is a full lockout in one motion. A press-out will not count as a rep. Can you show us a press-out? Okay. A Press- out will not count for a rep. ThatÕs the Push Jerk. The other style of jerk that is acceptable would be a Split Jerk. Again, with the Split Jerk, what weÕre looking for here is to make sure we can recover with our feet together and making sure the elbows go all the way straight in one motion. That would constitute a Split Jerk. Both of those are permissible as long as there isnÕt a press-out. Okay.
