Re: Split jerk weaker than clean and jerk...

Could be a technique issue. You seem to be theorizing that your failed jerks were due to shoulders being fatigued from presses. But the jerk, when done correctly, is not about pressing strength, it is about being explosive with the legs and being very quick with the feet. You have got to be quick, dropping your center of gravity down to catch in the lunge.
