Kendrick Farris - New Am Record @ Oly Trials

201 CJ @ 85 BW. Just about the easiest record-breaking lift you can imagine -

Gotta say, I didn't expect to see a push/power jerk for record breaking lift... very nice.

What Farris does is actually halfway between a split and a power jerk. Left foot goes back a little. Sort of a B-squat jerk, very unique.

Itsa splot! I love watching Kendrick.

Looks like he just rolled out of bed for that one. No problem.

Wow. That was sick. Greg, can you make me that strong? Should I start hula hooping now?

Best,

Jon

Sure. We'll jump in my time machine, go back to when Kendrick was about 9 and started lifting, steal his pituitary gland and some DNA, then go back to when you were 9, install your new components, and start training. Easy.
