Load For Maximizing Jerk Power Output

Competitive weight lifters looking to maximize powder in the jerk and back jerk exercise might be interested in the findings of a study recently published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research.
 
After determining one rep max (1RM) for 13 males with weight training experience, subjects took a power test assessing loads between 30% and 90% of 1RM. Although there were no significant differences for peak power across this range in the back jerk, the optimal load for maximizing power for the jerk was 80% to 90% of 1RM.
