photo-973It's interesting to look at the different styles of jerking in olympic weightlifting. The most common version is the split jerk, as Tim shows here. Photobucket The push or power jerk is the next most commonly seen technique. With less room for the body to get under the bar, this way of jerking requires tremendous amounts of speed and power. Photobucket The squat jerk requires incredible flexibility and pinpoint accuracy. There is virtually no room for error in the squat jerk.
