On ur picture... Pic 4th, 5th, 6th... I can't keep my arms like that...

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?

You got all the time in the world to talk about this nonsense but when The Gospel is on the table you run and hide.

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.

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.

Sure, 1 jerk a day, keeps the doctor away.

Then work on your forearms and wrist flexibility, its as simple as that, start with a broomstick then use a barbell.
