Rack Split Jerk
5 sets x 1 Reps
Perform 5 sets at the same weight focusing on technical consistency over load. Try to hold the receiving position for three seconds on every lift. If you came on week 1 (11/8) or have a 1RM Jerk, aim for a weight around 70-80% of your best lift. We also performed a submax rack jerk on 11/12.

B: :20 Air Bike
The intention on this EMOM is to go heavy on the cleans (3 singles, no touch and go) and hard on the bike.
