Overview

The push-jerk is a movement in which the barbell is pushed from the front rack position to overhead with help from the legs. It differs from the push-press in that the lifter dips under the bar rather than simply pushing it up. It is popular in CrossFit workouts and Olympic weightlifting, as well as power training for athletics. It is usually performed for low reps, focusing on power and movement quality.
