More Drop Set Jerks

Re-introducing the 32kg jerks today in a drop set format. The more I work with the 28s the more I see the logic in the AKC ranking tables. Making the jump from 24 to 32kg bells would have been very difficult. Putting the time in with the 28s is going to make my eventual transition to the 32s much, much easier. Every time I do a 32kg jerk or snatch set, I am amazed how well I am able to handle the weight -- all from working the 28s.

Warm Up
Jerk(2x32kg) 3 minutes @ 6 rpm
Jerk(2x28kg) 3 minutes @ 9 rpm
Jerk(2x24kg) 3 minutes @ 12 rpm
Rest 10 minutes
Snatch(28kg) 6 minutes @ L18/18/18 ---> R18/18/18
OAJ(40kg) 8/8
Swing(40kg) 30/30
Bulgarian Split Squat(2x16kg) 10/10

I rested 6 minutes between the first jerk set as I was paged and had to make a phone call. Rested 3 minutes between the second and third set. My legs were quite tired after this workout, making the split squats even more difficult.

I remember the first time I tried jerking 32's...I think I got 10. After 4 months of working with 28's I jerked the 32's 45 times in 6 minutes. I had never even tried snatching the 32 for time, and in the same 4 month time frame I got 84 reps in 6 minutes.
