Olympic Lifting

A) Drill/Technique. 10 minutes.   1) 5 Minutes on the Jerk Drive for technique.  No score.  Work as light as necessary (down to a pvc pipe) to insure a rigid spine and full extension of the ankle, knee and hip. 45 second Video HERE. 2) 5 minutes on the Jerk Drop for technique. Work as light as necessary (down to a pvc pipe) to insure fast feet and a locked arm at the catch.     30 Second video HERE.

B) Heavy Test.  10 minutes.   From the rack, find a Heavy Single in the Push Jerk.   Not quite PR intensity.  For today, don’t advance your weight if you catch with a bent elbow and muscle it out.

C) Work capacity.  12 minutes.  1 Round of CINDY, 1 Jerk @ RXD is 155/105.  Athletes should work with a weight that allows them to get 3 unbroken reps with good technique.  This bar comes off the floor,  so athletes must be able to clean to the shoulders.
