Squat clean and Jerk
In this movement, the barbell goes from ground to overhead with the athlete passing through a full squat position while the barbell is racked on the shoulders. This can be a full-squat-clean-thruster, a power-clean-front-squat-split-jerk, or anything in between as long as the three key positions are reached. The barbell begins on the ground. Touch and go is permitted. No bouncing. The athlete must pass through a full squat with hips below knees. The barbell must come to full lockout overhead with the hips, knees and arms fully extended, and the bar directly over the heels and heels in contact with the ground (see photo below).
Please be sure to watch the entire workout instruction video for full details. One round includes a squat clean and a jerk. You must complete the squat clean before moving on to the jerk and you must complete the jerk before moving on to the next squat clean. If you miss a jerk you may power clean the bar to set up your jerk attempt. You will enter your result by the number of rounds completed, plus an additional squat clean if the final round is incomplete.
Heather Bergeron 29 rounds (58 reps), Pat Sherwood 22 rounds + 1 clean (45 reps).
Post rounds and reps completed to comments and/or register and submit your results as part of the CrossFit Games Open.
For a rep to count for the CrossFit Games Open, the barbell must end in the stable position over the heels. The left image is close but not quite complete. The bar is forward of the toes and is not stable. The right image meets all standards.
If you are a registered Open Sectionals athlete attending a regular class other than the Open Gym, a judge will be assigned to you. Judges and registered athletes must watch the video.
