Push Jerk Behind the head

  • Keep your feet under hips.
  • Keep your legs and butt tight
  • The push jerk is a dip-drive-drop-catch-stand or dip-drive-press down-catch-stand.
  • The push jerk starts with the barbell supported in the racked position on the back of your neck and top of the shoulders.
  • Begin the movement by dipping into a quarter-squat and driving the barbell to the overhead position as you catch the bar in a partial squat.
  • Finish the push jerk by standing up to fully open the hips.
  • No thumbless grip. Bar should sit over the bones of the forearm, not back towards the fingers.
  • Don't stand hunched. The biggest problem is Gradying - Not standing tall after the bar is caught.
