Greg, In regards to the answer you gave a couple of days ago about wrist flexion, I may have not been clear or may be misinterpreting you. I was wanting to know about the wrist flexion at the beginning of the second pull, not the third. So when the lifter's arms are down by his side, and simultaneoulsy with the shrug, the lifter flexes his wrists under. I hope this makes sense.

Dave - The wrists should remain neutral - Flexion during the 1st or 2nd pull is similar to elbow flexion during those phases - If the weight is heavy enough and the acceleration great enough, it will force the wrists from flexed to neutral, which will absorb some of the force that should have been transferred to the bar by lengthening the attachment from the body to the bar. The bar should be pulled into the body under the control of the lats. Also, keep in mind that the shrug is more an initiation of the 3rd pull than it is part of the elevation of the 2nd.

Hi Greg, Just wanting to be clear with how you present the workout, eg. snatch x 5 x 3 would be 5 reps for 3 sets? Are the reps always presented first, then number of sets? Also, for today's Snatch + overhead squat + hang power snatch + overhead squat – 60% x 5 sets, is each complex considered one set and this complex would simply be repeated for a total of 5 times?

Aaron - If there is no weight first, it's sets x reps, e.g. pull-ups - 3 x 10 is 3 sets of 10 reps. If there is a load first with a "x", it's reps x sets, e.g. snatch - 80% x 1 x 5 is 80% for 1 rep for 5 sets.

what is the difference between a push jerk and a jerk? The crossfit affiliate near me only has 20" box's, granted they have ton of them, but none any bigger. So, I built my own 48" monster, I'm only 67" tall, so it looks pretty cool, I'm convinced their is a strong carry over from high box jumps to o lifts due to the vicious extension against the ground, am i wrong or should i keep jumping higher?
Greg Everett 2008-03-11
"Jerk" with no quaiifier indicates the athlete's jerk of choice for maximal loading, which for that vast majority means the split jerk. For those who actually use the push/power jerk, there is no difference. Keep jumping.
