Coach, I hear you say "drive back, punch back" when your lifters are getting ready for the jerk phase of the C&J. Would you mind explaining what you are directing the lifter to do? I'm just a newbie but I am learning alot by watching your lifters. I appreciate the resources you are making available through this site. Thank you very much, Bruce, in Pennsylvania

Bruce -I say that in particular to Alyssa and Dawn because they both have the habit of shifting forward as they dip and drive and pushing the bar forward. In a proper split jerk, the bar actually has to move backward slightly into the overhead position. So the "punch back" refers to that - they need to not push the bar straight up, but attempt to direct it backward somewhat; the cue is also an exaggeration. Same goes with the drive back part - I want them focused on staying back on the heels, and it's an exaggerated effort to move the bar back to counter the tendency to shift forward.

Coach Everett, Thank you for taking the time to explain that detail for me. I wish I was able to train in an environment like you have there, it looks productive as well as fun. I'll be watching, Bruce, In Pennsylvania
