    Why does everyone mistake the Clean and Press for the Clean and Jerk?

    On youtube I have only found maybe two decent videos of the move, one by Serge Redding and another of Doug Hepburn, all the other videos people are using their leg power so it technically constitutes as a clean and jerk, not a clean and press surely? People need to get their facts right...

    Does anyone know of a good Oly weightlifting site that knows its stuff and has good vids/pics and information on the move?

    The press that was banned in the olympics in '72 is perhaps my all-time favourite move for upper-body strength.

    This is the best olympic weightlifting site I know, and there are plenty of vids, including many of the clean and press.

    There are some clean and press videos on the DieselCrew website... one of them actually has some really cool editing, not sure what they are under though - will try to take a look later on.
