Max Reps of KB Jerks in 5 Minutes. 2 @ 35#/ 2 @ 26@
100 Ab Mat Sit Ups
Post load, reps and times.
Coaching Tips: Scale load and movements to match your current fitness level. Work on speed and landing technique when doing the split jerks. Quick transition in the down up and the drop into the split jerk position. Focus on breathing technique as well. The KB jerks are done with 2 KB's and can only be rested in the front rack position or the workout cannot be considered as Rx'd. All workouts are not long in duration, therefore effort levels should remain very high to receive the desired results from the exercise combinations.

Liza shows us the proper breathing technique for the deadlifts. Whether for max loads or high reps, the deadlift breathing method remains the same. Deep inhale, hold, lift, exhale.
