Not sure if its because the weight is too light or what but I was pretty disappointed in seeing this. The jerk on the pc was real sketchy but I felt the jerk on the squat clean was pretty good.

Thoughts and opinions welcome.
On your jerk try to keep your back toe in so both toes are pointed forward. It sounds silly but makes a difference.
