From the August CrossFit Journal to The Shed: Jerk Supports. Watch the video: Video

I saw the above exercises in the CF Journal this month and had to try them. This is a great exercise to help learn to stabilize weight overhead. You’ll be able to use far greater weight than you could jerk or snatch, but that is the point. Get comfortable and stable with big wieghts overhead and you’ll improve confidence for your snatch and clean & jerks.

    Luca, Burton and I worked our way up to 265 on the jerk presses! Cool exercise.

    Snatches – 1st weighted snatches for Luca. And, Burton hit 95lbs for a PR (only cause 24hr Nautilus wont let him drop weights!). I worked up to 145 for 4 reps.
