Father's Day Art & Productive Jerk Day

Happy Father's Day

Had a great father's day yesterday and my boys made me some excellent cards including very blog specific artwork.  I wonder where they have seen this pose before........
My jerks felt great today.  I think I have been gaining thoracic spine mobility via my FMS corrective exercises and it is starting to make a difference in my overhead position.  Today, I also had a bit of a breakthrough with the timing of my second dip.  In my opinion, jerking the 28s and 32s is a much different beast compared to the 24s.  With the 24s, I really didn't need to get under the bells quickly on my second dip.  The 28s and 32s require a much quicker 2nd dip.  Today, I really noticed this click and my jerks became much crisper with better lockouts and the lift just became easier overall.  Hopefully I can continue to groove this pattern and my numbers will begin to improve quickly.
