All Kinds of Jerks

By admin | In Olympic Weightlifting | on November 30, 2012

For you visual learners out there, today’s post is a compilation of videos of world class lifters demonstrating the lift for you. Watch the lifters and take note of their set up, technique and focus. See their speed getting under the bar, meeting it when it’s weightless, and staying tight all the way through the finish.

Kendrick Farris’ Squat Jerk

See more of Kendrick Farris’ lifting videos here.

Aimee Anaya’s Split Jerks

See more videos of Oly lifts at Catalyst Athletics.

Chinese lifter’s Jerk Dips (great for jerk training)

And finally, a great slow motion breakdown of the clean and jerk:
