Today, I decided to jerk the 28s to see where I stand based on my work with the 24kg bells. I have to say that I am surprised with the result.
Jerk(28kg) @ 6 rpm x 6 minutes
Jerk(24kg) @ 10 rpm x 4 minutes
Swing(32kg) 30R/30L x 1 set
My 28kg jerk set went very smoothly. I originally planned a 5 minute set, but I was feeling good and decided to go for the extra minute. I could have gone longer. I am surprised how the heavier bells really make the jerk a full body exercise. The leg drive truly becomes a critical component of the lift. A few months ago, the jerk was my weak lift, but now that I have found a comfortable rack and can actually rest, I think it has become my stronger lift. Making the CMS snatch numbers is going to take me longer. I will get an idea how much longer tomorrow when I plan to perform a timed snatch set with the 28kg.
