Using the Clean and Jerk as Your In-Season Workoutby: Tim Tobin Assistant Coach and S&C Coach Tusculum College

In my weight room the clean and jerk is our lift during the season. It builds explosiveness and has shown to keep athletes healthy. The clean primarily works the hamstrings, lattisumus dorsi, biceps, and trapezius muscles. Players learn with this lift to be explosive because it teaches to produce a large amount of force in a very short period of time.
Another benefit of the lift is that it works hips and glutes. They are two very important areas that have to do with power and speed. Clean and jerk is the perfect lift. You can have a whole, complete body movement workout with just one lift. My goals during the season are keeping the players on the field during practice and, most importantly, on game day. That is why this is my lift during the football season.
