    Great video! I can't wait to give this style a try. Almost like a jerk with the double layback.

    Sorry if this is covered in the video or just common knowledge, but when the press was a competitive lift, did the person have to clean the weight first from the ground???

    Cause wasn't the competitive lifts, Press, Snatch and Clean & Jerk?

    Clean & Press, Damien.

    It's common for the last to be subbed for the full name of the clean & jerk = "jerk" as well in certain company.

    Coach, is the Olympic Press programmed the same way as regular presses are in Starting Strength / TM / etc.? Here, my assumption is that the weight isn't cleaned into position first.

    They are done from the rack, just like in the video.
