SUNDAY READING/WATCHING


Back Foot Hits First In The Split Jerk

In the split jerk, the rear foot should connect with the platform a split second before the front foot. This allows you to push off the back leg slightly to keep your hips under the bar as you finish moving into the split. This staggered connection generally won’t be significant enough to see in real time. In real time, it will typically look and sound like the feet hit together. Without the back foot connecting first, it’s more likely that your hips will move behind the bar
