Split jerks are so much more technical than a lot of people realize, and they end up neglecting to pay appropriate attention to technique, footwork and body positioning. There are countless exercises you can utilize to improve your split jerk, and Camille Leblanc-Bazinet has two really good ones.
The first one is called tall jerks. Start up on your toes, the bar resting just above your head, arms engaged. Quickly drop into your split and pause there before recovering. This should be done at a light weight.
Some split jerk drills from today! First video are tall jerk to work on my foot work and keep my torso upright while receiving… note I am not resting the bar on my head, tension is in my arm and this is for technique not load! ‘ Second video is pause split jerk to work on straight up torso during the dip and position in the catch #workhard @clbnation @cjinvictus #beproud #thesmallthing
