Split Jerk (behind the neck) (No Measure)

Warm up and build to a heavy set of 3×3.

Split Jerk (2-2-2-2-2)

2rm Split Jerk from rack

Front Squat (6 sets x 2 reps)

After warming up into the weight that will be used for the 5 sets, aim to stay at that weight for the entire 5 sets. Choose a challenging weight, but a weight that you will get through all 5 sets, without having to drop weight off the bar before completing sets.

**This is a strength benchmark for lifters and we will do this same rep scheme at a later time with the goal of increasing strength and weight used over time.
