Re: Snatch vs. clean & Jerk?

They are similar. The snatch is less forgiving of bad habits. The clean & jerk allows more weight.

People who can do the snatch well rarely have much problem with the clean & jerk. The reverse is not always true; there are many folks who can clean big weights but can't snatch worth beans.
