Take the barbell from ground to overhead in one smooth motion. This lift can be one of the prettiest movements done with a barbell, when done correctly.
Lift the barbell from the ground to the shoulders in one motion. Due to the nature of only going to the shoulders, this lift can usually be done heavier than the snatch and looks less intimidating.
The jerk is the final lift in competitions. After a clean, the lifter will take the bar from their shoulders to overhead in a second motion. This lift requires incredible physical and mental strength after performing a clean.
