No Air Time

Leaving the ground during weightlifting is what happens when an athlete tries to violently extend the hip by actually jumping, as opposed to just violently extending the hip.

The confusion arises when a trainer uses the cue to "JUMP!" to provide the extension result. As the novice athlete improves and gains experience, the intermediately athlete should learn how to "finish"- or jump without leaving the ground completely.

Remember that the point of the snatch, clean, and jerk are to elevate an object up and then immediately get under it. Any wasted time is inefficient.
