Couple of technique tips this Friday!

1. We did clean and jerks on Wednesday and one of the issues that kept coming up throughout the day is not getting full hip extension in the push jerk. It can be really difficult to feel this as an athlete and sometimes it’s hard to see as a coach. This video does a great job of showing a push jerk with full hip extension and one without. You CAN jump without opening your hips all the way, but you are definitely not getting all of the power your body has to offer. Maybe seeing this from someone else will help you get better at this movement.

2. Rowing technique is something that gets taken for granted, but it can make a huge difference in how you feel when you finish the 1,000 m in Jackie today. Here’s some basic rowing technique that we can all fall back on as we get tired.
