I'm with Mike. There are extremely rare individuals who are genuinely better at the power or push jerk than the split. Usually the preference is due to a lack of experience with the split jerk or having been taught poorly or improperly. It's no accident that the split is used by the overwhelming majority of competitive weightlifters in the world.
