STUDENT: When the weight gets heavier, do you find yourself splitting further because you’re driving under the weight? Or should the stance always be the same? Because if you’re trying to push under the weight you can only push it so high before you have to push down. Then you’re going to have to spread wider to have that base. KENDRICK: I don’t believe so because, we have exercises we use in training like for loading, right? And then we actually start doing the movement, I feel like everything should mimic and look the same. You know what I mean? Even like, I’ll do some power and squat jerks but I’m still driving that bar the same height. The only reason I’m starting to do a squat jerk now is because, look I can no longer power jerk that weight. So now I’m just absorbing that and just going on for the ride. Let’s say if I was doing a split jerk, and my best split jerk it was on the blocks, 225 kilos. I didn’t go deep. It was just … it’s right in there. You know what I mean? I didn’t have to take an extra step. Yeah, I didn’t have to take an extra step to get it. CARA: Train how you want to perform. KENDRICK: Yes. CARA: You’re executing the same way over and over and over again. That’s how you train the motor pattern. If you start changing things, that new motor pattern is not developed to handle maximum weight. Train yourself how you want to execute. KENDRICK: I like that. Train to execute. I’m going to put that one in my pocket. It’s mine now. [laughter] Don’t let those feet get away from you. You want a nice split. Right lane, left lane, don’t let the feet get away. I would shorten it just a little bit. OK? You want me to get behind you? I’ll get back there. I’m behind you, please don’t kick me. STUDENT: I don’t know how far away you are. KENDRICK: Please don’t kick me. There we go. We got to shorten it a little bit. Alright, I’m going to take, I’m going to come over just a little bit more. You see where I’m at? Alright, cool. Shorten it just a little bit. Just a little bit. Cool. I can deal with it. Don’t you feel stronger? If it’s here, I’m like oh my goodness, I have to recover from that. You shorten it up just a little bit, it’s like, OK, it’s a nice little base.
