Last week, finished our push press strength sequence and maxed out our clean and jerk. So, this week, we are going to test our max effort split jerk. A highly technically lift, the split jerk requires a lot of coordination and confidence under a load. When done properly, the legs slide into the split position and the athlete catches the bar overhead without a lot of upward movement on the bar. Because we are driving ourselves below the bar, we are able to maximize the amount of weight we can press (“catch”) overhead.
If you are not comfortable with the split position yet, do a push jerk.
