Jerk Balance

In my previous post I brought attention to the fact that we are use the Tall Jerk in 6 skill sessions this cycle to help your speed and aggressiveness under the bar. There will also be six skill sessions that will focus on the Jerk Balance. This drill will allow you to train the proper movement of your body under the bar and develop improved stability and balance in the split position. I encourage you to look at the programming and come to the days with these sessions if you need help with movement, stability, and balance in the jerk.

We’re already seeing a lot of technique improvements in many students who have been consistently attending jerk days. Keep up the good work!
