- The Back Rack Jerk does a great job reinforcing the vertical dip/drive the barbell needs to take when we split jerk. Often when split jerking the bar takes a swoop forward and we catch the bar driving our chest forward and weight moving toward the forward foot. The back rack jerk does a great job correcting this, and that is where we want your focus.
- Your goal is to keep your hands at the same width you would for a regular split jerk from the front rack (if possible). Some may have to go wider if you have shoulder restrictions.
- Moving the bar from the front to the back can be taxing on those with poor mobility or shoulder Issues. If this is you, please let a coach know and do front rack jerks instead. Split Jerks
This WOD has 2 parts. The second part is a little extra credit, and your score is from Part I only. When you finish Part I, look at the clock, wait approximately 2 minutes, then begin Part II.
