Jerk Drive @ 160kg.
Final heavy-ish training session this morning leading up to the Singapore Weightlifting Open 2017 this Saturday.
Jerk drives are an overload accessory piece that trains awareness to support load and maintain posture in preparation for the Jerk.
Start by racking the bar in a similar position as your Jerk. From there, perform a single dip to load into quads while maintaining an upright torso. Subsequent reps, work on driving through the quads and hips to unweight the bar off the shoulders before re-racking. You should receive the bar in the same position, supporting it with your lats and quads.
In terms of load, start with about 70% of your front squat 1RM, and over time, aiming for 110% of your front squat 1RM.
