For the jerk, as in the snatch and clean, certain parts of the body have to move out of the way of the bar so it can travel up straight. In other words, these parts have to move around the bar. In the jerk, of course, the head is the only obstacle. Also, the distance from the shoulders to overhead is a much shorter than that from the ground to the shoulders or the ground to overhead.Watch

All athletes can attempt the split jerk sets. Experienced athletes can go as heavy as possible, while newer athletes can use this workout as an opportunity to drill the movements.
