Clean and ?


Recommended Posts


Could you explain the difference between two dumbells simultaneously:

1) clean & jerk

2) clean & push press

My body weight is 65kg and I've just managed to clean and jerk two 32Kg dumbells(2inch thick). This was the first time I did this exercise. Do you think this weight is any good?

By the way, thank you, Chris James, for the inspiration...

    Simply put, both a jerk and a push press will start with a leg drive/straightening. In the push press, the weight is pressed out and the legs are not rebent. In the jerk the legs are rebent to lower oneself under the bar and there is no pressout.
