Watch Multiple Time Black Belt World Champ Andre Galvao's clean & jerk workout routine at his garage in San Diego Ca. In this Vlog Andre Galvao shares his thoughts about training, conditioning, jiu-jitsu and more.
The Strength And Power-Building Benefits Of The Clean And Jerk
Few moves are as dynamic and recruit as many muscles — namely, the quads, back shoulders, glutes, and core — as the clean and jerk. It’s one of the two competition lifts in the sport of weightlifting, but it’s a pretty useful addition to your workout program. That said, the clean and jerk isn’t easy to do. It’s essentially three moves in one — a deadlift, a clean, and an overhead press — and learning it takes time, skill, and patience. However, you’ll be rewarded with more full-body strength, coordination, and power — which is probably why you’re reading/watching this hehe!
Don't forget that S&C is a supplement for your jiu-jitsu training. Make sure you do it as part of your training schedule, always remembering that this is not EVERYTHING but a supplement for your mat strength and conditioning. It will help you!
