Solid work, Jason. Any particular reason you decided on biathlon vs LC as your focus?
I've been asking myself the same question, since I've come to like jerks better than snatches. Is it any easier to recover from LC training?

Re: Two-Arm Jerk in GS: Really Worth It?

Since you're not long cycling you have a lot of different options there. Shit, now that you mention it, I could use taller heels. I'm w...

Re: Two-Arm Jerk in GS: Really Worth It?

I've forced myself to work on the rack, and dammit, it's getting a lot better. And now I like the two-arm jerk better than the snatch.

Here's the new problem: I make my knee sore as fuck on the first dip. Something about the knee thrusting so far out over the foot with a lot of force on top of it.

I think we can all agree that wrestlers, being supreme athletes, would show us how to use kettlebells the right way, gentlemen.
Not sure I'm ready to implement all their ideas. This one looks distinctly Hard Style.
