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.
