Today we're talking to three-time Olympian in weightlifting Cheryl Haworth. Cheryl is one of America’s most accomplished lifters, and she competed in her first Olympic Games — Sydney, where she earned bronze — when she was just 17 years old. That Olympic Games also marked the first time women could compete in weightlifting at the Olympic level. In this special episode of the BarBend Podcast, Cheryl joins us to look back on her experiences in Sydney 20 years ago, and what it was like to be among the first group of women Olympians to represent the USA in weightlifting.
Cheryl Haworth is a 3 time Olympian in weightlifting with a bronze medal in the 2000 Olympic Games. Cheryl was inducted into the USA Weightlifting Hall of Fame and is considered one of the most respected weightlifting coaches in the sport.

This week our hosts are diving in head first on how to improve your jerk. This episode is dedicated to dissecting the jerk from the set up to the finish. We’ve got a bunch of tips coming your way, including on how to improve your positioning, some technical variations, and proper foot work for the jerk. Also, you can follow along with a review of a listener’s jerk with the provided link below, along with some other links of note for the benefit of your own jerk. Enjoy the show and be sure to leave us a review!Topics:07:25 - The jerk23:05 - The dip36:50 - “The Pez dispenser technique”41:00 - Split depth1:12:00 - Video AnalysisTips for Corina’s jerk (from video analysis):*NOTE: Many critical mistakes are made and some fundamentals ignored before the dip is even initiated. Corina exhibits a few of these mistakes, but hopefully some of these cues can help.1. Setting a proper tempo for a consistent dip (including a more consistent depth) requires an athlete lock out the knees prior to dipping. While the knees are locked try to combine that with the action of wiggling your toes. This shifts the body to the back part of the foot which is critical in driving the bar straight up. 2. Take time to make your set up routine the SAME each time. Be thoughtful and deliberate. 3. Between sets of jerks, focus on one or two either mobility or positional drills. Corina, I recommend you do wall dips between sets. (Wall dips: placing your back flat against the wall with your feet beneath you as if you were going to dip. Practice the dip with your entire back sliding straight up down the wall.) this will help with the awareness needed to dip straight. Shoulders need to stay on top of the hips. 4. Shoulder mobility is key to handle heavy jerks and “stacking” is critical. Practicing jerk recoveries in which heavier loads are lifted will allow you to feel how to balance overhead and if there are some lingering mobility issues. 5. Pairing jerk recoveries with shoulder mobility exercises/stretching will help.Recommended Protocol for Corina:*To be performed as the first 3-5 warm up sets of any jerk work in program for 4 weeks; at that point reevaluation is indicated to confirm that the protocol has made improvements and/or to adjust as needed either to find more appropriate drills or to progress from the previous.A.
