A clean and jerk takes about 5 seconds to perform—but you can analyze those five seconds for hours.
Kroon is working with light weight, but Coach B is quick to correct form errors that will be amplified when the plates start adding up. Kroon’s main problem is a bit of forward inclination in her dip, which pushes the bar away from her as she drives it overhead during the jerk. As a result, her bones aren’t “stacked” and leave her in a position in which she can’t support heavy weight.
By the third lift, Kroon hasn’t managed to correct the fault—but she knows where the right position is and moves into it before standing up with the weight. The key now is to land in that position during a PR attempt.
