This movement is the hang clean and jerk. When done properly this movement will train all the muscles of the posterior chain in rapid hip extension, as well as core and overhead stability as the athlete maintains the bar in the overhead position. When setting up for this movement it is important to allow the athlete to reset once they've caught the bar, and also that they are fully stable in the overhead position before standing up with the bar.
