201 CJ @ 85 BW. Just about the easiest record-breaking lift you can imagine -

Sweet. Looks like he's switched to a squat jerk, from the weird split/squat jerk he used to do? Or was that the camera angle.

Looked like a squat jerk to me...

Wow. Do his misses look that "easy" too?

Good thing he drank his Vitamin Water...

He still split slightly - but either way, it's not a squat jerk. Cara Heads squat jerks - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jsBLietcapY

Oops -- saw it wrong...

This was the old style Kendrick Farris jerk I was thinking of:

Greg,
Is the requirement for a squat jerk to come to the thigh below parallel?
