The Best 9 Exercises To Explode Your Absolute Strength

Behind the Neck Power Jerk/Split Style Jerk

Power-Jerk-FixThe first two reps are Power Jerks while the third rep is a Split Style Jerk. Begin the exercise by holding the bar behind the neck while the arms support the bar with a wide grip. Now, dip in the knees 4-6 inches while the back remains relatively straight. The back of the head, hips and the ankles form a straight line. Drive the bar up while extending the hip, knees, and ankles and think about jumping into the air. Once the bar reaches the top of the head begins to dip again. As you dip push yourself away from the bar. At the top of the movement, the elbows are locked and you are pushing up on the bar in an attempt to pull it apart.

When performing the split style version your legs split as you push your self away from the bar. The front foot moves a shorter distance than the back foot. The toes are slightly pointed inwards as this creates a positive angle. Split the feet with lightning quickness.

Now there are some elite athletes who may just breeze through this and if they do, good for them but for the mere mortals out there, most of you probably have never done many of the exercises and the smart way to begin would be to add one exercise to your regular program at a time and slowly master it.

When you have one down. Then start on another. Remember, this is to build strength. It is not to kill you. And remember, as you begin adding new exercises to your old program, you begin deleting those exercises that work the same muscles less effectively from your regular workout. I think this should hold your interest for a few months at least.

  2. Excellent blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally overwhelmed .. Any ideas? Thanks!
