I have been lifting for about a year and a half. I’m 16, 215 pounds, and my best lifts are a 98 snatch and a 126 clean and jerk.
I lift 5 days a week.
Mon: Snatch, Back Squat, Assistance Exercises for posterior chain
Tues&Fri: Upper Body
Wed: Mobility and Agility
Thur: Clean&Jerk, Front Squat, Assistance Exercises for posterior chain
However, my jerk has started to suck. What are the best exercises to supplement the jerk? or is just performing more jerks the answer I’m looking for? Thanks in advance.[/quote]
My jerk is no stronger than yours so don’t take what I say as fact, but I know that my jerk improved when:
- I did it more, including jerks from the behind the neck as supplemental exercise
- More shoulder pressing and push pressing, moreso of strict pressing.
Thats what helped me. I still miss jerks sometimes of course.
I guess my jerk is stronger because I weigh less, but I would wait for some f the more experienced guys to speak before doing anything drastic with you training.
