Skill

1RM Clean & Jerk

Work up to a strong effort Clean & Jerk.  For most athletes catching the bar in a full squat and performing a split jerk will be the most efficiency way to move the most weight.  Start by performing several reps at a lighter weight and then increasing gradually to a strong effort lift.

Workout notes: The recommend weight for this workout is about ~60% of your lift during the first part of the class.  That should make the load fairly manageable in a higher rep format.  Depending on your relative strength between your clean and your jerk you may be able to perform a push press or push jerk as this is essentially shoulder to overhead in this format.
