BTN (Behind The Neck) Split Jerk


Increase weight ea set

Video courtesy of CrossFit HQ.  Some good words of wisdom from Coach B.  One of the biggest benfits of Behind The Neck Split Jerk is the translation of bar position to our regular split jerk.  When you land a jerk, the bar should be right over the shoulders and hips.  Going from BTN allows our body to get comfortable with that position as it starts in that spot right away.  Just stand all the way up between reps and do not drop the bar too quickly on the shoulders.  Also, as the bar makes contact with the shoulders, bend the knees to absorb the shock.  Be careful to not land the bar on the neck.
