Note: Today we are combining Olympic lifting (the Push Jerk or Split Jerk) with the tempo training methodology for the shoulder press. The tempo is a three second descent, touch the shoulder, and immediately Jerk the weight to the top position. This combination “overloads” the descending press for increased strength, and fatigues the shoulder for exacting Jerk technique. Pure awesomeness. For the Rope Climb, Advanced Athletes can experiment with a “Slow Decent” in the same manner as the Tempo Pull-up training. Compare today’s weight to June 23, 2016, and try to add 5lb. to each working set. Prescribed weight for the Hang Clean and Push Jerk complex is 95lb. for men and 65lb. for women.
