The Movement Fix Ep. 1: Split Jerk (Back Heel)

By Dave Thomas
Performance360 Coach, USAW, Russian Kettlebell, CPT, CNC

What is The Movement Fix?
It is a video series where we will be addressing and improving any single aspect of our training. It may be mechanics of a major movement, ways to get more out of smaller movements, how to efficiently pace your workout or any instance we can spend a few minutes educating you.

What will today’s episode cover?
Today, we will examine the split jerk and how to correctly land with your back heel. This is a common mistake that people all over the spectrum of fitness levels make, and it can make a huge difference in learning effectively, or hitting a big PR.

What happens if I don’t watch?
You may put your hips in an “open” position, causing your balance to shift and a highly efficient, possibly unsafe lift.

Total watch time:
2m 06s
