In this week’s Olympians’ Tips video, US-American Weightlifter CJ Cummings is going to talk about the Jerk! The Jerk is one of the most technical parts of the Clean & Jerk. There are two ways to do the Jerk: The Split Jerk technique and the Power Jerk technique. When you do the Split Jerk you want to make sure that you are perfectly lined up and balanced through your body as you recover.

1) Keep your elbows up
2) Drive with your legs
3) Find that line of symmetry
