Did clean and jerks for the first time today. Started out on light weights just to get the motions down and then slapped on weights, did 105 5 times. The jerk is easy, but getting that weight up to your shoulders is tough. I really like them though, I want to incorporate them into my normal workouts. They wore me out fast... a full body compound lift, basically.
For those who may not know what they are.. ignore that it's a fat powerlifter doing them, this is the form though: Image: http://cdn.bleacherreport.net/images_root/article/media_slots/photos/000/508/104/MangoldClean_original.gif?1344186428
Of course I'm not doing that kind of weight so I don't have to go into a full squat, maybe a quarter squat at most as I'm able to pull the weight up higher.
