A. Split Jerk: Build to a Heavy Single (245,265,285)
B. Push Press: 3x3; rest 4min (235,235,245)
7min Heavy Carry Medley:
1 Arm Fat Bar (55lbs.)
Zercher Carry (185lbs.)
Notes: Moderate energy going into today's workout. I was up early for personal training etc. and I was running around doing various activities along the way. Needed to focus on the technique of the jerk since I really don't get all that much exposure to it. Worked slowly up to the heavier weights, hitting doubles all the way up to 225 lbs. I was focusing on a shorter dip which would transition me quicker back under the bar after the drive. 265lbs. felt like butter, so jumped to 285lbs.. 285 was the cleanest jerk I have ever caught but I was locked out (no press out). It was a bit forward. Looking back at the video, I didn't reach the front foot far enough forward (knee was over toe, which probably prevented me from getting my torso through. More exposure to this and I should be up around 300 (not really necessary right now being that the open would never have a max anything). Push press felt pretty good, especially after the heavy jerks. I didn't want to overextend my neck forward when locking out the weight since that usually jacks up my rhomboid. Instead I got the bar back and came back down. Rhomboid felt fine afterward. Medley went well. Some fatigue in my lower back afterward, and also my biceps.
