Clean & Jerk

GregQuote of the DayLeave a Comment

“But beyond opinion and personal favorites lies science. And according to science, the clean and jerk is one of the most – if not the most – effective and all-encompassing lifts you can perform. With a floor-level starting position, mid-level “racking position” and an overhead finish, the C&J is rivaled only by its Olympic-lift brother, the snatch, in terms of physical and mental demand. Studies have shown it increases your strength, size, power, speed, coordination, vertical jump, muscle endurance, hormone output, bone strength and physical ability to withstand stress.”
