What Is A Clean And Jerk?
Impress the folks in the gym with your superior knowledge of weightlifting terminology by dropping clean and jerk into the conversation
A barbell is lifted from the floor to your chest (that’s the clean bit) and from there raised above your head (the jerk). See also snatch (no laughing at the back).
The clean and jerk is often regarded as the single best lift for developing strength and power.
