Abstract

ABSTRACT: THE JUMP SHRUG IS A WEIGHTLIFTING MOVEMENT DERIVATIVE THAT CAN BE USED TO TEACH THE CLEAN AND SNATCH EXERCISES OR AS A STAND-ALONE TRAINING EXERCISE. THE BALLISTIC NATURE OF THIS EXERCISE ALLOWS ATHLETES TO PRODUCE HIGH AMOUNTS OF LOWER EXTREMITY POWER, AN ESSENTIAL COMPONENT TO ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE.
