Hey Greg quick question for you. My strict should press is 220# and my Push Press is 265# however my jerk is lower than my push press and I know that is not right. How much more should my jerk be? I am probably going to come to CA for some work on my jerk technique for obvious reasons.

Michael - You should be able to jerk anywhere from 20-35% more than you can push press - really depends on your individual strengths/weaknesses.
