Heavy clean and jerks tomorrow. Not only how much you can pull to your shoulders, but also how much you can jerk over your head. Many of us are held back by our jerk, in the “clean and jerk”. key points:
For a Premium jerk:
1. Focus on the clean first. The better the clean, the less taxing on the body it will be. Less taxing clean means more strength and power can be generated for the jerk.
2. Position your hands. After the clean, adjust your hands so your fingers move from a front squat rack position to more of a pressing position.
3. Little dip. Big drive. Let the bar smoothly, push you down, while you are staying very upright.
4. Get those feet where they wanna be! Make sure your split is wide enough to create a strong platform.
