Push Jerk

  • Make sure you are locking out over your center of gravity, which is probably further behind your head than you might expect. This should help with balancing the weights.
  • When landing after a push jerk, you’re torso needs to be vertical with your knees bent
  • Front squats will help your push pressing drive tremendously.
  • The push jerk starts with the barbell supported in the racked position on the front of your shoulders and top of the chest.
  • 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.
  • Don't land with a lean and bend in the hips, you’re increasing your risk of injury, especially to your lower back.
