A lot of guys have a lot more problem with the jerk than the clean (but not all.)

Many new lifters don't understand how fast one must move, nor how far down the body needs to move and how far up the bar doesn't move. Other common problems are related to a bad initial dip before the drive: too deep, too much horizontal movement, bar losing contact with the shoulders or doesn't even touch the shoulders at all...
