Mark,
I'm not sure if I understand the question.
The push press uses a single knee bend initially to help get the weight up over head. Are you talking about another knee bend to absorb the bar as it comes back down to rack position? The jerk uses that same knee bend w/ an additional knee bend to get under the bar at lock out. They are two different lifts w/ two different techniques. Hope this helps.

Mark, if you're using a "double knee bend" (using the term loosely as there really isn't on on these lifts) then what is the difference between the 2 lifts for you? The push-press should be finished with a press with the arms and NO bending of the knees.

mark, its the terminology that is confusing people. the double knee bend is used when cleaning and snatching a weight. its that eccentric movment pattern right before the explosion or the concentric pattern. when you say you use the double knee bend on the pp and pj you are saying that you dip and drive...correct? if so,then yes you do use this pattern. on the pp its a dip and drive (upper body strengthener) while on the pj you dip, drive, and redip or land in order to drive your body under the bar....this movement becomes a power or leg movement. the double knee bend or "scoop" as some call it is used when one pulls the bar from the floor to about mid-thigh, the knees are then driven forward, under the bar (scoop, dbl knee bend) then one jumps vertically to create movement and elevation on the barbell. http://www.crossfit.com/discus/messages/22/22939.jpg
