Jerk Progression - 20kg Bell

Today I worked through my famous "Jerk Progression" with the 20kg bell. I had intended to perform 3-minute sets today, but unfortunately when the time came to train, I realized that I didn't have my clock with me. I cleaned out my car over the weekend and left it in my garage following my Saturday workout.

So, as a means to compensate, I decided to hit my target reps for each movement moving as a pace that I gauged to be in line with desired 3 minutes. Regardless, I was sucking wind pretty good at the end of the second and third sets. Here's the play-by-play...

Press: 20kg - 18L/18R

Push Press: 20kg - 24L/24R

1-Arm Jerk: 20kg - 24L/24R

Followed by a yoga cooldown.

My energy wasn't all there today. Probably the hectic weekend coupled with not eating as well as I do during the week. We'll see how tomorrow feels. That's it for today. Jerk 'em up y'all!

Good going Howie! I like what I've been seeing over the past couple of weeks. I'm particularly happy for you that the back issue is more under control now. So you also don't eat much during the week? That's the corporate world for you.

Thanks man. I've been diligently working my compensatory movements following these workouts (for the most part). I swear they are what is keeping my going.

I big THANK YOU to Scott Sonnon for that.

And to clarify, I eat a lot during the week and not as much on the weekends. I usually pack a big lunch and snacks every day. On the weekends, I'm not as regimented.

Hey Franz! Thanks for stopping by. Yes, training is going well these days. I'm trying to lay a solid foundation before baby #2 arrives in August. Once she joins us, everything is up for grabs!
