I’d seen Brock’s 600# Back Squat, 500# Front Squat, 310# Snatch and 385# Clean from a few weeks ago. I’d also seen his lackluster 355# Jerk (relatively speaking of course), and told Outlaw Power Head Coach/CF Sua Sponte Owner, John Dill, that I’d work with him next time I was in Raleigh. As I said yesterday, I got the chance to spend a couple of days at CFSS this week, and last night we got Brock in the blocks to work on his relatively weakest lift.
With a couple of fixes to the weight distribution in his foot and a little “Jerk Jail”, it’s not his weakest lift any longer. He came in with a recent PR of 355#. Once we felt it was time to test some load, he went 375#/170kg – 390#/177kg – without a miss – and finished with the FOUR HUNDRED POUND/182kg Jerk you see below. I apologize for the cursing in the video, but I was truly stunned when he hit this lift.
Brock Kirian – 400#/182kg Jerk PR:
1) 5X1 Snatch – work to a max for the day, rest as needed
2) 5X1 Clean & Jerk – work to a max for the day, rest as needed
4X5 Front Squats @ 95% of Monday’s 5rm – rest as needed
