Push Jerk 3-3-3-2-2-2-1-1-1 reps

Remember that the Push Jerk is all legs. Start with the bar (sandbag, dumbells, etc) in the front squat position, then ‘jump’ the bar up imparting momentum and elevation on the bar. While bar is traveling upward, drop the torso so that the arms lock straight and the weight is suspended overhead with straight arms and engaged shoulders (shoulders in ears). The completion of the movement is to straighten the legs so that the body is in full extension.

If you do not have racks to hold the weight, it can be cleaned from the ground for each round.

    Shouldn’t have tried for the big jump at the end but I wasn’t counting weight and I figured what the hell.
