Description

Squat clean and Jerk
In this movement, the barbell goes from ground to overhead with the athlete passing through a full squat position while the barbell is racked on the shoulders. This can be a full-squat-clean-thruster, a power-clean-front-squat-split-jerk, or anything in between as long as the three key positions are reached. The barbell begins on the ground. Touch and go is permitted. No bouncing. The athlete must pass through a full squat with hips below knees. The barbell must come to full lockout overhead with the hips, knees and arms fully extended, and the bar directly over the heels.

Required Equipment

A barbell configured for 75lbs / 35kg

 

Additional Notes

Please be sure to watch the entire workout instruction video for full details. One round includes a squat clean and a jerk. You must complete the squat clean before moving on to the jerk and you must complete the jerk before moving on to the next squat clean. If you miss a jerk you may power clean the bar to set up your jerk attempt. You will enter your result by the number of rounds completed, plus an additional squat clean if the final round is incomplete. For a downloadable PDF of the workout with a score card, click here.
