Pausing Push Jerk (3 x 3)

PAUSING PUSH JERK For Quality: 3 Sets of 3 *Pause For 2 Seconds in Dip & Catch STIMULUS Progressing from the jerk strict press to a more dynamic movement, the pausing push jerk There will be a two second pause in both the dip and the catch position Like the previous skill builder, build in weight while maintaining quality The general percentage we're looking for here is to keep these below 50% of your 1RM Push Jerk Rest as needed between sets to maintain solid positioning MOVEMENT FOCUS The focus here is finding the heels in both the dip and the catch Jumping and landing with the heels on the ground allows for better power and balance Good movement here sets us up nicely for good looking percentage work that follows MOVEMENT PREP With Empty Barbell: 5 Pausing Push Jerks (2 Second in Dip & Catch) Then… 2 Sets of 3: Very Light Warmup Sets Then.. Begin 3x3 Working Sets
