Very cool video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2mc3fBpm8WA

I was very interested in his jerk technique. When you see it from the front it looks almost like a split jerk where he doesn't move his legs then from the side you can see that it is a push jerk with one leg slightly back. Really amazing amount of weight to me. I just want to be able to squat that much....

That tells me his jerk is a lot stronger than his clean if he doesn't need to quarter squat to jerk it. I was wondering, is a double bounce at the bottom ideal? Looks like he crashed came up 2-3" and used the reflex to stand. That too tells me his jerk is the stronger part of the lift.

All in all though, very nice lift.

Jake was a splitter until he strained his back. I was told he PJ 170ish of the blocks in training. So he just kept PJ. You can see he had more pull too.

Bounce usually indicates that the bar has been caught slightly out of position, or in this case (as it looked pretty spot-on), that the weight is really f****** heavy.

That's a beautiful lift. We have a junior 69 at our club who snatches 97 and C&Js around 120, but man, 155? If he stays healthy he'll go really far.

He actually tries 157 or 160 after this one, but the push jerk puts him in a squat and he x's

That is incredible. He's crazy fast under the bar.

Very impressive.
