Dropping Your Elbows in the Jerk

Dropping your elbows in the jerk is a bad habit that will halt your progress. Try adding a simple dip or two before your Olympic Jerk to re-pattern the movement. All we ask is that you keep pushing up on the bar and stay braced and slow on your way down, it will improve your weightlifting & CrossFit in no time!

This will carry over to all variations, push jerks, power jerks, squat jerks and split jerks.

Hope this helps.
