Hi Coach, what is the difference between the jerk and the push press? Or, is there no difference?

The jerk is a full on split jerk, where the athlete dips, drives, and jumps himself into a lunge. The push press is a dip, drive and press the bar over head. There is no jump in the push press and is more of an upper body exercise.
