Now im a little confused on what a jerk dip squat is. Is that holding the bar over head in a split position and squatting?
Greg Everett 2009-04-29
Drew - Bar in jerk rack position. Perform the dip portion of the jerk, stand up again. Not a speed movement, just a strength movement for that position/posture.
Matt Wichlinski 2009-04-29

keeping up a fast pace in these lifts CF style, so form deteriorates a bit. Also working off some injuries, but what can i do to fix this stuff up? I see footwork problems and soft elbows or something.
Jonathan 2009-04-29

Any specific height recommended for the box jumps?
Greg Everett 2009-04-29
Jonathan -as high as you can manage for that many reps/rounds. I'm not a big fan of short, spastic box jumps that really amount to the same thing as rope jumping while lifting the feel really high.
Greg Everett 2009-04-29
Matt - Biggest thing is that overhead position with the soft elbows. Stretch the fucking dogshit out of your shit. Also, with your snatch, take your grip out way wider (do it gradually so you don't fudge up a wrist). Split footwork can use some work too - you're splitting really short. Work the split transition alone in warm-up, some tall split jerks, etc to get more focused practice on it.

Dogshit...got it, thanks dude, I think my behemoth biceps just won't let it go out. some of my clients use my bi's for box jumps, others just run laps around them
Greg Everett 2009-04-29
Matt - Yeah I don't have that problem. At all.

However, I am happy with my jumping progress since I started oly lifting, not that its very impressive but its way better than it used to be for this white boy.

Cory 2009-04-30
So no split on the Jerk. Just an overhead squat with your hands in C and J position?
Billy Badass 2009-04-30
My lats are so huge that international shipping vessels carry cargo with them...My calves are so massive I can't lay down on my back comfortably!! ODOYLE RULES!!
Alex 2009-04-30

JP 2009-04-30

Just had some jerk boxes built. They are in CFSD right now. Can't wait to start using them. Thanks for the specs!!
Greg Everett 2009-04-30
Cory - The Jerk has a split - it's a split jerk. The jerk dip squat does not have a split because it's not a jerk - it's just the dip portion. Found a video - jerk dip squat.
Greg Everett 2009-04-30
JP - Saweeeta. Your gym just got way awesomer.
