Video: Sean Waxman – Olympic Weightlifting Drills: The Jerk Balance

The jerk balance reinforces the idea of stepping through during the jerk. Combine this exercise with the Canella Cross drill from last week.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Every Wednesday we will be featuring a new Olympic weightlifting video from Sean Waxman of Waxman's Gym. Brush up on your technique and learn some coaching tips from a world-class coach.

This week we look at the jerk balance, which helps reinforce the idea of 'stepping through' during the jerk. This drill is best when combined with the Canella Cross, another helpful drill for improving your jerk footwork. If possible, do this drill with someone who can check your foot placement.
