I have a O-Lifting Program, that has a jerk balance as one of the exercises, problem is i dont know what it is?And cant find it in any of my notes/books.
Im thinking possibly some kind of over head split squat along the same line as a snatch balance
Can anyone help?

hi fiona.....ok...here is a jerk balance: start with the bar on shoulders in front....take a small partial split, not more than 1 ft or maybe slightly more, but not much.....dip (must be a straight dip) drive the bar up with the legs, step forward into the finishing split while driving up hard with the arms...in essence you are pushing the body down into a deeper split, one that you would normally hit on a jerk. one of the best coaches usa weightlifting ever had, lyn jones, taught us that exercise. it does wonders when correcting jerk problems. contact me if you need more infor. mikeburgener@mac.com

That sounds like a winner--thanks to both of you. (Last time I was trying to drop into a deeper split, I was screwing around and ended up doing the "bar-to-the-underside-of-the-chin" exercise...gotta love that one!:lol:)

Thankyou Coach Burgener
It make sense, on two levels.Both technique wise and becasue Lyn Jones is now in Australia and it was one of his associates that wrote the program.
I will be giving it a go today
