How to do Jerk:

 

- Start with a barbell in the racked position across your collarbones. Your hands should grip a little outside of the gnarling.

- With your feet underneath your hips, dip into a quarter-squat position.

- Extend your legs, open your hips, and explode up to drive the bar into the overhead position.

- As you extend the bar overhead, dip a second time to drop under the bar as you catch the bar with your arms extended.

- Stand up to the starting position and lower the bar down.
