Power Clean and Split Jerk 1RM

By: 0

Last week we talked a bit about why we establish a 1 RM and the standard numbers we should be shooting for across various lifts. Because the Clean & Jerk are separate components of those standards it’s difficult to say you need to be shooting for “x” number. The Clean & Jerk is really two lifts getting the weight from ground to overhead vs. the Snatch which is one floor to overhead movement. You get a break in the middle of the action to refocus and reset your grip, stance, breath, and landing. Your Power Clean and Split Jerk 1RM  number is going to be limited by one of two things–your 1 RM max on a Clean or your 1 RM max on the Jerk. Is it your technique that’s limiting you or your strength?  Are your shoulders stronger than your hips? Can you even fire your hips properly to get the maximum out of both of these components of the lift?  You have lots of time to work that out today in both the strength work, EMOM, and WOD. Use it wisely! if you really want to geek out on the split jerk check out this article.
