Take Your Lifts to the Next Level With These Explosive Split Jerk Workouts

Techniques & workouts to master your split jerk lifts.

A split jerk is an explosive overhead lift that combines strength and technique to perform correctly. It is arguably the simplist of the lifts, moving the weight from the front of the shoulders to the overhead position, using the legs and arms to drive the barbell upwards.

The split jerk is a popular CrossFit exercise that builds serious muscle in your shoulders and arms, and to a lesser degree works your quads, glutes, hip flexors and hamstrings.
