bends at the knees. The barbell is gripped, palm downward and pulled in a single movement from the platform to the shoulders, while either splitting or bending the
legs. During this continuous movement upward the barbell should remain close to the body and the barbell may slide along the thighs.
The barbell must not touch the chest before it stops at the final position either on the clavicles, chest or on fully bent arms.

The athlete waits for the Referees’ signal to replace the barbell on the competition platform.

The Referees give the signal to lower the barbell as soon as the athlete becomes motionless in all parts of the body.

Before the Jerk, the athlete may adjust the position of the barbell for the following reasons:
a) to withdraw or “unhook” the thumbs
b) if breathing is impeded
c) if the barbell causes pain
d) to change the width of the grip
The barbell adjustments noted above are not considered to be an additional attempt at the Jerk.
