In both the snatch and the clean and jerk the barbell is lifted via a “jump” performed by the lifter at the top of his or her extension. Oftentimes, this jumping action of lifting the barbell is either not developed well in the case of many beginner lifters, or it is overstated and excessive in some others. As athletes develop better technique and efficiency in the movement, the footwork from the pulling stance to the receiving stance will become more precise. This quick lifting and moving of the feet is what allows a greater speed of descent by the body than the barbell being lifted. To drill this movement perform the OH portions of the Burgener warmup moving the empty bar overhead to lockout while jumping the feet into position. Focus should be placed on quick outward movement of the feet.
