Jerk Technique

So you've cleaned the barbell... now what's next?? Getting it overhead with good technique, timing, and power!


Check out this video detailing key points of the jerk as we look to improve our overhead strength and technique in today's skill portion.


It may help to pause or watch certain sections over as each piece contributes to a well executed lift.


Have fun and lift well!
