I did exactly the same volume of jerk work today as on Monday but following a different format. My session looked like this:
Warm up: Swings / squats
24kg OAJ: 4 sets of 20 (10L/10R): 80
16kg OA Overhead squats: 5 / 5
Some deep body weight squats
I realized something interesting today. When I first started using the GS lifting methods as opposed to the hard style methods I was WAY too relaxed. Trying to follow someone doing GS lifts on Youtube is not necessarily a great idea. In my case I was trying to mimic their apparently relaxed style resulting in not only a loss of strength but a pretty inefficient lifting technique on my part. Today's jerk sets drilled this point home nicely. My movements were snappy and explosive when necessary and relaxed when not. Now I understand viscerally why GS can make you strong - it is far more explosive than it seems so don't be fooled by how flowing the lifts can look at times.
