push jerk question

i've watched the video in the main site for the push jerk and the girl displaying the exercises goes into a partial lunge
but on the video linked to the WOD 090206 shows no partial lunge.

so which is correct? split leg, partial lunge style or legs pretty much together?

Re: push jerk question

A split jerk requires a partial lunge, but a push jerk does not. Unless the WOD calls for a split jerk, perform the push jerk.

Re: push jerk question

When hitting jerks, 99% of Olympic lifters will split jerk because it generally allows you to hit more weight.

Re: push jerk question

Agree with everything above...one separate nugget for you to consider...Push Jerking has a faster cycle time than Split Jerking...so you can complete WODs containing Jerks faster by Push Jerking than Split Jerking.
