I think that would be permitted, as long as it touches the ground between each rep. These are the standards:

The barbell begins on the ground. Touch and go is permitted. No bouncing or dropping and catching the barbell on the rebound. Once dropped, the barbell must settle on the ground before beginning the next repetition.

The athlete must pass through a full squat with hips below the knees. Receiving the barbell in the bottom of the squat is not required. A power clean or split clean followed by a front squat will be permitted.

The rep is complete when the athlete’s hips and knees are fully extended, and the bar is resting on the shoulders in the front rack position with the elbows in front of the bar.
