Split Jerk


Increase weight ea set

Video courtesy of Catalyst Athletics. Our pressing variation this cycle will focus on the Split Jerk.  The goal is here getting an very violent hip extension, then driving our bodies down under the bar FAST, as we PUNCH to lock out the arms overhead as we land in the split.  Focus on the fast drop and the punch to avoid having to press more than needed on the catch


For Time:

200 Double Under Buy-In, then…

3 Rounds:

25 Pull Ups

20 Dual DB Hang Clean and Jerk (50/35)

10 Handstand Push Ups

Video courtesy of Street Parking. Quick demo on the Dual DB Hang Power Clean and Jerk. Highly advise when going through the double under buy-in, don’t try to sprint them.  Find a nice, steady pace to avoid tripping up. In the triplet, the big takeaway is making sure you don’t over-tense your back in the DB Hang Power Clean and Jerk.  Keep your back nice and straight, and use a hip hinge to get the DB’s popped up to the shoulders. Use a strong hip pop to move the DBs off the shoulders going into the jerks.  This way you’ll save some juice for the HSPUs
