Split jerk – 5×1:AHAP
*warm-up to as close to 95% as possible and complete all singles at that weight.
The last time we saw the split jerk it was an all singles format as well. The discussion was around how difficult a movement it is and how focusing on good form and proper execution will go a long way in becoming more stable OH. However, sometimes when the brush stroke is too broad, we cannot see the smaller picture. So today, let’s narrow the scope a bit and work on something very specific. How to receive the bar with both proper footwork and head position. When we complete a split jerk, the feet must make it into a proper lunge or the upper body is put in a bad position. Also, the head must finish “through” the shoulders or the spine will be overextended and susceptible to injury. Today, let’s work on getting better at each.

“Wind Chill”
16 min AMRAP
300m row
15 ring dips
12 T2B
9 burpee box jump overs
When you look at a workout, you want to try to identify the “sticking point”. Where will things slow down for me based on my abilities? For most, looking at the ring dips into T2B, I would imagine a great deal of shoulder fatigue will start to occur if you do not break these up specific to you as an individual. Even if your goals are big sets, how big can you go without sacrificing intensity? What’s the best approach for you because the shared goal is always to keep moving forward. I’d say breaking them up early, even when you think you do not have to will leave something in the tank for later in the AMRAP.
