Coaching Tips: The jerks should be unbroken for at least the first round or two. You may have to break the squats up, but it is better to do them in small sets, but keep the bar on your back. Most people will do better with a high bar back squat and a more upright torso. The low bar variation will ‘blow up’ the low back in this combination. If you are someone who always needs oly shoes for squats, I highly recommend you spend some time mobilizing your ankles for this one.
Optional ‘Cash Out’: None
