The Split Jerk has been my favorite lift since I was introduced to the barbell back in 2009. Check out this video to get a rough idea of your foot position on the Jerk. It is rather common for athletes to Jerk with too narrow or too shallow a stance.
I really like Aladin’s foot position in the photo above. When I asked him how he felt about the lift, he had this to say:
“No beard, NO REP.”
Keep up the Strong Work, Aladin.
