How do you get over the fear and how do you do it??Ahh... good question. I'm not coach Glen Pendlay lol but, if you back squat frequently that would get your body ready to secure a huge load on your shoulders, because your best back squat is most likely far greater then your best BTN jerk(or front). So for me when I have the bar on my traps ready to be jerked, it feels fairly light. Jerk the weight up the exact same way(dip and drive) and jerk like your normaly would. For bringing the weight down, all you have to do is slow the gavitational pull and dip(like your going to jerk it) and you'll catch/recieve that bar right on your traps like before you jerked it. If you try this maybe first with weights 50% to get used to it, I think you'll be fine with BTN jerks. The emphasis is partly on helping you put that bar right behind your ears and sticking your head out, often times jerks are missed beacuse they don't "push through". I'll post some great vid's/training from Greg Evrett demonstrating proper technique. http://www.cathletics.com/exercises/exercise.php?exerciseID=202Now if you follow the link, go to the catalyst athletics website....then click I think exercises(barbell), and theirs a huge directory of Olympic lifts and assistence exercises. Keep in mind some are silly(for me n u) like muscle cleans, but Greg is just demonstrating proper technique for all of these exercises. This may help you alot with technique flaws. I think you mentioned once you had trouble getting under the snatch....Greg has a great vid of the "snatch balance" exercise, which in my experiance works wonders on confidence and speed issues(and the Drop Snatch/Tall Snatch) hope this helps man, good luck
