Pushing in the Jerk
Because we are jerking today, I wanted to share a great article that details when you should push with your arms during the jerk. As you know, the jerk isn’t a press…you create upward momentum by driving with your legs, then punch yourself under the bar to “catch” the weight. But, you still need to think about your arms and when you press will depend on whether you are more of a strength or an elastic athlete.
Read the article and watch a video here:
