Pictures of Jerks!

I am busy, so you get pictures of jerks.  No, not that kind.  This kind:

This is me jerking 65 lbs.  The workout on Monday consisted of five sets of three reps.  I made it up to 80 lbs.  PR!  (And then failed at 85 lbs.)

Yesterday's workout involved double unders (argh) and ground-to-overheads at 55 lbs.  I'm not proficient at snatching (which would be the most efficient way to do that) so I cleaned and jerked instead.   I quickly found myself doing split jerks.  In the picture above, I'm standing up from the split stance.

More soon
