Clean & Jerk
The clean and jerk is a ground-to-overhead any way. A muscle clean, power clean, squat clean or split clean may be used to get the bar to the shoulders, and a shoulder press, push press, push jerk or split jerk may be used to get the weight overhead. The barbell begins on the ground. The barbell must come to full lockout overhead with the hips, knees and arms fully extended, and the bar directly over the middle of the body.


The athlete must start with an empty barbell. The athlete must load their own barbell and may not receive assistance. Prior to each lift you must state what weight you are about to attempt. Plates smaller than 1⁄2 lb. may not be used. There is no limit to the number of attempts within the 5-minute time limit.


  • Barbell
  • Collars
  • Plates to load for your max clean and jerk (no smaller than ½ lb.)


Prior to starting, film the plates and barbell to be used so the loads can be seen clearly. All video submissions should be uncut and unedited in order to accurately display the performance. Shoot the video from an angle so all exercises can be clearly seen meeting the movement standards.
