Slow Motion Jerk






The slow motion jerk is a basic technique exercise for the jerk to help the lifter better adjust and feel positions and balance throughout the lift.
 
 
Execution
 
Perform a push jerk at a very slow tempo, maintaining continuous tension against the bar. Begin with the feet in the receiving stance because they will remain planted on the floor. The exercise must be done as push jerk instead of a split jerk in order to maintain the slow speed in the motion under the bar.
 
 
Purpose
 
The slow motion jerk is a basic technique exercise for the jerk to help the lifter better adjust and feel positions and balance throughout the lift.
 
 
Programming
 
Slow motion jerks can be used to warm-up, or as a technique primer before jerks in a training session. Work with 3-5 sets of 3-5 reps generally.
