Clean and Jerk

Golden, power clean.

The clean and jerk is often called the king of the lifts.  It is possibly the centerpiece of the Crossfit movement arsenal.  It may not have the sheer beauty of the snatch or the grinding strength of the deadlift, but it is the perfect marriage of weight and speed.  And weight and speed equals power.  Nothing develops power like the clean and jerk.

Workout:
