Coach's thoughts on today:

This is classic DotCom programming. As the shoulders get more fatigued the movement also allows heavier weights. This won't allow for the same weights you might normally use for a single with the jerk, but it will still be pretty heavy. If you are normally doing Form, don't feel obligated to get real heavy on those Jerks. It is a movement that is a bit more technical so work on really developing the right mechanics. Many of you who are doing the Intensity group tend to do Push-presses and not Jerks. Not here. Even if it means going a little lighter learn/practice dropping under the bar.
