Ultimate Clean and Jerk 10:00 @ 40kg

This was pretty tough. The unfortunate part is that I had some left in the tank at the end. Finished with 81 reps. I've practiced a bunch of one arm jerks but almost no long cycle for any duration--definitely should have been better prepared. I think with some work I can hit 90+ reps.

Good stuff, Max. Do you have an ultimate goal you're shooting for with the jerks? Do you try to increase the time you go for, or the reps, or both? I don't have much experience with jerks and have been looking for a way to incorporate them into my variety days without killing my progress in other lifts. Thanks for the comments on Dragon Door. I may be out your way soon and hope to drop by your gym and say hi.

Take care

10:00 cap, trying to get competitive.

Let me know when you're close and we'll set something up for sure.

The general rule for competition lifts is to start with a light weight and increase time, then reps, then weight. I like to do both high and low reps with light and heavy weights.
