View Full Version : Head Position in Jerk

I've been practicing the split jerk and the push press.

The one thing that bothers me is that I keep thinking that I'm going to hit my head with the bar.

Looking up seems to help, as I haven't hit myself yet :), but what else can I do?

Are you talking about when you're putting your head through? You want it to be close, so it'll just take some getting used to. Looking up will probably make you more likely to smack your face, try looking forward until the bar comes near it. I'd rather get the lift and take the bloody nose any day of the week myself.
