“Fast hands! Fast feet!” Shouts Olympic Weightlifting Coach and former Marine (Oorah!) Mike Burgener.
Olympic Weightlifting is about speed strength. Being strong doesn’t cut. Being fast doesn’t cut it either. You need both, as well as accuracy, balance, coordination, and flexibility. The split jerk is a dynamic and efficient movement. Wanna put some serious, make your friends jealous, weight overhead? Then split jerk.
