Deciding which type of Jerk to commit to isn't as difficult as people might think. By definition, all Jerks (Split, Push, Power or Squat) require a dip of the hips/leg, a drive upward, and a re-dip or "catch." As such, the question that must be solved is which of the styles can the athlete get the lowest while maintaining strong shoulders. In the end, the lower the athlete can receive the barbell (during heavy loads) while remaining strong the more effective they'll be. So, figure this out and you'll easily figure out which of the 4 styles of Jerks fit your athlete.
