Jerk- 175# PP- 150/ 160# JDS- 200# + 4:21- dead hang supinated pull ups/ 32kg kbs Split Jerk behind the neck still feel awkward. Some reps are good, some are off balance. Using % of 1RM Split Jerk from front. Push Press got tough on last 2 sets

What's the theory of the behind the neck vs. regular jerk presses? Seems to violate the SAID principle to me. I guess the real reason I ask is because I was (stupidly) doing weighted lunges for a few weeks on another training plan WITHOUT a bar whose collars rotated. This forced a lot of external rotation on my elbows and I believe one of my rotators is impinged. I've been working it out and it's feeling a lot better but when I tried to do the behind the necks today it flared up again. Doesn't hurt so much when I do regular.

Hmm.... Let me clarify real quick. I am NOT challenging this free and incredible programming. That was simply a question of why behind the neck instead of in front. Re-reading my comment made me seem like a jackass. I apologize if it came off that way.

Behind the neck jerks make it easier to feel where bar should go overhead as you do not have to clear the head/face to get it into the correct overhead position. It is a good exercise to reinforce that position. You may have some shoulder mobility issues that need to be corrected so you can perform the exercises safely. Continue working on jerks in a position that doesn't cause any injury and keep working on that mobility.
