http://wilfleming.com/jerk-technique/- My jerk sucks. Seriously, it’s pretty bad. I’ve been working on it as much as possible though, and doing a lot of reading on the subject. This is a very thorough article on jerk technique, as well as some possible fixes for problems you may be having.  



http://danjohn.net/2011/06/the-four-steps/- This post by Dan John not only outlines the 5 basic human movements everyone should be doing, but also the order in which they will cause results. I strongly suggest you understand the importance of all five of these movements. It will change the way you look at your training.


http://startingstrongman.com/2015/01/27/the-farmers-walk-why-you-should-do-them/- The farmers walk seems to be making a comeback, and for good reason. Simple, effective, brutal, what’s not to love? Check out this article by Kalle Beck over on Starting Strongman about the importance of having these in your training.


https://www.t-nation.com/training/bigger-better-faster-longer- Dan John has a lot of wisdom to share. He’s been in the strength game longer than some of us have been alive. This article is almost a rant about various topics in strength and conditioning. It’s interesting, it’s funny, and it’s informative. Grab a pen and paper and jot down some of the things you see here. You will thank me later.
