Yes..don't do them. For a supposed trainer you should know this. You know, too much external rotation, possible cervical impingement. I'm sure you understand :-X

Your technique is fine...but don't do them. Jerks are done from in front not back. See progressions and sequence. Ironic this subject came uptwice in the same day.

I'm not sure Steve is a real trainer. I think he is more the type that trains middle-aged single men that like to be supervised by a swole pro.

You're talking about wrist flexibility and not so much about getting your elbows up. Regardless, In the picture the lifter is doing a CLEAN and jerk. Since you're starting with the bar on the rack, you don't need to "catch" the bar from the clean position. You can take it from the rack (like a push press or military press) set up and go into the split jerk. The key is to NOT push the bar up but rather drop below and away from the bar (during the split). make sense?

Steve, not trying to be a dick here, but I have seen videos of Cena doing cleans and clean and jerks with no problem. Figured I would mention it before anyone chimes in with the : " Steve's arms are too big to get into that position". Work on your wrist flexibility.

Yes, my wrists are not flexible enough but also I don't think my arms are much smaller than Cena's but shorter that's for sure...

I know why you are trying to do the behind the neck jerks. But trying to do them right now could seriously fuck up your shoulders. And for what you are trying to accomplish, power cleans and clean and jerks will give much more bang for your buck with much lower injury risk.

I used Cena as an example because he is a pro wrestler with plenty of muscle mass and flexibility. If he can do it, so can you.

I'll try to practise more the clean and jerk, also I'm doing snatch too.

Post by: BB on April 01, 2012, 09:37:45 PM
If going behind the neck is of concerned, can you jerk/push jerk it from the front out of the rack? Out of the rack you can play with hand position till you find a comfortable spot.

Well at least you have a purpose for doing them. Like others said I would be careful with the behind the neck stuff especially with how heavy you are going. Shoulder and lower back injuries can be chronic and fuck you up bad in the long term

Yes..don't do them. For a supposed trainer you should know this. You know, too much external rotation, possible cervical impingement. I'm sure you understand :-X 

eh, 'too much' external rotation? 99.99% of the people here or in Anygym in Anytown, USA will have too little external rotation, resulting in impingemnt in the shoulder.

i've did these for a while back in '09/'10, and i don't miss that bar crashing into my neck one bit.

better off doing snatches from your knees, or at the very least using a hammer strength jammer.

...well, based strictly on the video evidence presented to getbig in recent times, I don't think Steve is on his knees to get to anyone's snatch, if one wishes to speculate as to the video's true target market. However, I think we can all say that Steve is in fact successfully "jamming his hammer with strength", as you put it above. It might be more of akin to  needlenose plyers rather than a hammer, but your point is not lost on us.

Advices? First you make an video which proves that you can't understand anything about training, and then you ask for advice? I have one for you: The one and only thing which you have to do the effect while training, is the muscle group which you are training. Not the pencilnecks in the gym, not your ego, not your friends. Only the fucking muscle. Simply enough? What you do there, is show off, because you think that you have done something special. What you have accomplish, is make a fool of yourself.
