Push Jerk

1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1

Check out This demo of the Push Jerk!
Look for:
1. Her hip opening up completely before the second dip.
2. She pushes herself underneath the bar and locks out her arms after the initial drive up.
3. Her minimal change in foot positioning

"Grace"

30 Clean and Jerks for time
135, 85 or an otherwise appropriate weight.

Beginners who were not confident with the clean and jerk worked on the movement with a PVC and light weight. Technique before intensity.


Skills:

After class we had "open training" for an hour so the athletes could work on whatever skills they wanted to develop.

Remember that tomorrow night is our first Monday night class at 7pm. All are welcome to attend free of charge!
