Shrugged Collective

Giant Jerks in the One Ton Challenge: Anders Varner, Doug Larson, and Travis Mash — Barbell Shrugged #403

The Jerk is the single olympic lifting movement that does not require a pulling movement. Driving your body under the barbell is a different beast than pulling yourself under the barbell like the clean and snatch. In the One Ton Challenge, if you are going to make it into the One Ton Club, you will need a big jerk. In this episode of Barbell Shrugged, Anders Varner, Doug Larson, and Coach Travis Mash outline the technique, mobility, and training to increase your jerk and get in to the One Ton Club.
