Slow it down, some relevant thoughts from Diane Fu: “Most of us will be snatching loads well under what we can deadlift so what’s the rush? We know we can handle picking the barbell up. Try instead doing a 3, 2, 1 count as you come off the floor; and as soon as you pass […]

Below, notice: During the split or push jerk you do not HAVE to be able to grip the bar entirely to be able to drive it up in a straight line, though Luke’s grip here is as minimal as it should get. Some prefer to keep a full grip on the bar when putting it over […]
