Don't bet on it Arden. I started moving my grip out after the clean more for comfort, but I am still pressing myself under the bar. The problem with going back to the narrower jerk is then that will become very uncomfortable. I think popping the bar up (even if you don't move your hands out) is a good thing to re-adjust your hands, you just have to practice it.
